The $1 billion package is just a fraction of the government's investment.

Earlier today [07 July 2022], the United States Department of Transportation's Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announced that it will fund 85 airport improvement projects throughout the United States.

In addition to this law, the FAA announced almost $1.5 billion in aid over the last two months as part of the Airport Improvement Program. The funding has been awarded in three parts, $608 million on May 12, $518 million on June 7, and $371 million on July 1.
