Two southwestern Louisiana airports have received U.S. Department of Transportation grants.

U.S. Rep. Charles Boustany, R-Lafayette, says Chennault Industrial Airport Authority in Lake Charles received a $2 million grant that will be used jointly toward rehabilitating the runway and for a wildlife hazard assessment.

Jefferson Davis Airport Commission in Jennings received $78,300 for an airport layout plan identifying future capital needs of the airport.
