Congress approves $5 million U.S. FAA grant for Chuuk State

FSMIS (September 28, 2014): On September 24, 2014, the Federated States of Micronesia Eighteenth Congress approved a grant in the amount of $5,000,000 from the United States Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), extended to Chuuk State for airport rehabilitation and relocation of the airfield electrical vault. 

This grant is to fund the second phase of the Chuuk International Airport rehabilitation project. 

Section 210 (2) of Title 55 of the Code of the FSM provides that for an agreement of foreign financial assistance to be valid, it must be approved by resolution of Congress. 

Senatore Wesley Simina, commenting after the adoption of the grant, said the FSM National Government had also provided $125,000 for repair work on the terminal building, which he felt was vitally needed for Chuuk. 

Airport improvements in the FSM States have been done under grant assistances accepted by the National Government.
