DeKalb’s Airport as a Grant Funding Priority


Was the Daley Policy Group initially hired just to get money for the DeKalb Taylor Municipal Airport, or are airport grants simply the low-hanging fruit in DC?

Grants for DeKalb by Daley Group

Over the past 20 years:

  • At least 20 separate airport projects were funded, compared to seven non-airport-related projects

  • $28.6 million, which is 68% of the total grant/earmark dollars, went to DTMA
