Massena airport receives $1.8 million federal grant
MASSENA, New York (WWNY) - Massena International Airport was awarded a $1.8 million grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation to rehabilitate the airport’s apron.
Word of the grant comes from Congresswoman Elise Stefanik.
“I am proud to return over $1 million in taxpayer dollars back to the district in the form of this important grant,” she said in a statement. “Our local airports are a critical component of North Country infrastructure and tourism.
