GREENVILLE, N.C. – Pitt-Greenville Authority has received a $750,000 U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) Small Community Air Service Development Program (SCASDP) Grant. The grant will support funding for twice daily service to a second major airport hub on the East Coast to give Eastern North Carolinians more travel options when connecting. 
 
Senator Thom Tillis directly advocated for the grant on behalf of the Pitt-Greenville Airport Authority, including sending a letter to Secretary Elaine Chao in July 2019 asking for her support. USDOT’s Small Community Air Service Development Program (SCASDP) is a grant program designed to help small communities address air service and airfare issues.
 
“Today’s announcement is a major win and significant investment for Greenville and surrounding communities,” said Senator Tillis. “This $750,000 grant will be used to promote increased travel options for North Carolinians and generate additional economic activity in the community. I am proud I was able to advocate for this critical funding and look forward to the development it will bring.”
