Rep. Peter DeFazio Announces $750,000 Federal Grant for Southwest Oregon Regional Airport
Rep. Peter DeFazio today announced that the Southwest Oregon Regional Airport will receive a $750,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation. The grant, which is part of the 2019 Small Community Air Service Development Program (SCASDP) will help the airport in its efforts to attract new service to Portland on Contour Airlines, a regional company. The funds will cover a revenue guarantee, marketing program, and start-up cost rebates for the airport. “Small community airports like the Southwest Oregon Regional Airport are a vital part of keeping Oregon’s rural communities connected,” said Rep. Peter DeFazio. “A well-funded effort to attract new service will bring both business and tourism alike to coastal Oregon and help to keep the local economy moving.”

Southwest Oregon Regional Airport receives $500,000 to Support Air Service to Portland
On June 6th, 2019 the Oregon State Aviation Board awarded the Southwest Oregon Regional Airport a $500,000 Rural Oregon Aviation Relief (ROAR) grant, to assist in securing air service to Portland. ROAR grants are provided for projects that will assist commercial air service to rural Oregon.
The Airport is seeking to attract air service to Portland by providing financial and in kind service incentives. This $500,000 will bring us closer to that goal. Next month the Airport will be submitting a grant application to the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Small Community Air Service Development Grant program, for $750,000. Discussions with the airlines for Portland service is ongoing. The Airport hopes to initiate service in the spring of 2020.
Additionally the airport has received financial and local incentives from Bandon Dunes Golf Resort, the Mill Casino, Sause Bros., the City of Coos Bay, the Port of Coos Bay, and the City of North Bend.
