Yakima, Wash., nabbed $290,000, and Watertown, N.Y., received $235,000. Cheyenne, Wyo., and Montgomery, Ala., both were awarded $200,000. DOT gave Eau Claire, Wis., $150,000.
   The winners are located in 14 states; the department originally received applications for the 12-year-old grant program from 52 airports in 27 states.
   The winners will use the grant money to help attract new carriers, marketing existing local services or even conduct expanded-service studies, according to a DOT press release.
   “Our smaller communities need to be connected to the national and global economies to be competitive,” DOT Secretary Anthony Foxx said in a statement. “These grants will assist communities in obtaining more affordable and reliable air service for residents, which will help attract businesses and provide better travel options for the future.”
