Cloud Helps Secure $750,000 DOT Grant for Corpus Christi

Washington, D.C.—Yesterday, Corpus Christi International Airport (CCIA) was awarded a $750,000 air service development grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT). 

In March of 2022, Congressman Michael Cloud (TX-27) sent a letter to DOT Secretary Buttigieg to support CCIA’s application for the Small Community Air Service Development Program (SCASDP) grant.

This grant provides financial incentives for additional airline carriers, conducts studies on the possibilities of expanded service, and carries out marketing programs to promote existing local services. 

The grant will promote prospective new air service from Corpus Christi, TX (CRP) to Denver, Colorado (DEN), Las Vegas, Nevada (LAS), or both locations, depending on the airline’s selection.

“I was happy to work with the city of Corpus Christi and our federal resources within the Department of Transportation to help secure this grant for the Corpus Christi International airport,” Congressman Cloud said. “This grant allows those in Corpus Christi and the Coastal Bend region to have access to more direct flights and more destination opportunities. I’m eager to see the benefits this grant will bring.”
