GOJO Teams With ISSA to Offer Airports GBAC STAR Grants

May 5, 2021 GOJO Teams With ISSA to Offer Airports GBAC STAR Grants

GOJO Industries has launched a new grant program in collaboration with ISSA and the Global Biorisk Advisory Council, (GBAC), a Division of ISSA.

The program offers GBAC STAR™ Facility Accreditation grants to qualifying U.S. airports, allowing them to demonstrate a commitment to enhanced cleaning, disinfection, and infection prevention efforts that protect the health and safety of travelers.

“We are proud to partner with GOJO to continue to support the air travel industry in a time of need,” said GBAC Executive Director Patty Olinger. “We are thankful for GOJO’s support and dedication to enhance airports’ operations amidst the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.”

GOJO’s grant program allows airports across the country to join the more than 60 airports currently accredited by GBAC STAR, including Dallas Fort Worth International Airport, John F. Kennedy International Airport, and Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport. Applications for the grant program are open through May 31. Applicants will be notified of acceptance in mid-June.

“After months of being stuck at home, travelers want reassurance that airports are safe and clean environments,” said Carey Jaros, GOJO CEO. “We’ve been working directly with air industry partners for many months to offer our safe and effective PURELL® products. Now with this grant, we hope to help airports more holistically support America’s safe transition back to air travel.”
