Congressman Owens announced a combined $2,558,750 in Federal Aviation Administration grants on Wednesday. The grants are awarded for rehabilitation and upgrades to several regional airports in northern New York.
“Our regional airports are a vital resource for local business travelers and tourists,” said Congressman Owens. “Many connect travelers to larger airline hubs and support business activity throughout the region. These FAA grants awarded by the Department of Transportation will help ensure the longevity, safety and reliability of these important facilities.”
