Equity funds to assist with the construction of a 3,612 SF terminal building at the Louisville Regional Airport, a Level III airport as designated by DOT. The current facility was built in 1975 and is in very poor condition.

The airport serves a number of nearby cities including Wrens, Waynesboro, Millen, Sandersville and Swainsboro. The airport, with two fixed based operators, is on the US 1 corridor in Jefferson County and is strategically located adjacent to the 320-acre Louisville Airport Industrial Park.
