WASHINGTON, DC —  U.S. Rep. Antonio Delgado (NY-19) announced $2,213,966.00 in federal funding through the Department of Transportation (DOT) Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to support area airports. The funding was appropriated through the bipartisan Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act).

The full breakdown of funding for NY-19 airports is as follows:

  • $71,283 for Columbia County Airport in Hudson
  • $70,000 for Albert S. Nader Regional Airport in Oneonta
  • $2,072,683 for Sullivan County International Airport in Monticello 

“Upstate New York’s airports are critical economic drivers for rural areas, and these facilities play a key role in our communities’ pandemic response. The funding announced today will help to support airport employees and our local economies,” said Rep. Delgado. “As Congress negotiates next steps of coronavirus relief, I will continue to advocate for the needs of our upstate communities to make sure our region has the resources required to recover and build back stronger than before.”

“This important infrastructure grant comes at the perfect time, as this $2,072,683 will be spent very soon, reducing the economic strain from COVID-19,” said District 7 Legislator Joe Perrello, chair of the Sullivan County Legislature’s Public Works Committee, which oversees the airport. “I thank the U.S. Department of Transportation for continuing to ensure our Airport is kept modern and viable at minimal expense to local taxpayers.”
