Federal CARES Act awards $30k to Cortland airport

Local News

U.S. Senators Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand yesterday announced more than $400M in CARES Act relief for airports across the state crippled by the lingering COVID-19 pandemic, including $30k for Cortland County-Chase Field Airport.

Funding is allocated by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for airports all across New York State.

Additionally, the CARES Act provides funds to increase the federal share to 100% for the Airport Improvement Program and other grants already planned for fiscal year 2020.

Schumer and Gillibrand said additional funding and elimination of the local share will allow for critical safety and capacity projects to continue as planned, despite the current financial impact of COVID-19 on airports.

“As a gateway for business, family connection and tourism, keeping New York’s airports safe, functioning and well-funded is crucial to the Upstate New York economy and way of life,” said Senator Schumer. “This federal funding will offset the devastating financial impacts of COVID-19 on travel hubs throughout the state and allow New York airports to continue to work on essential services, like airport safety, and most importantly, will help New York airports have the tools they need to properly rebuild after the crisis is over. I’m proud to have fought for this funding to be included in the CARES act which will boost airports and the New York economy.”

The FAA now plans to begin releasing funding in April and would provide additional guidance on the Program next week.

“Investing in airport safety and infrastructure promotes local economic development in our communities,” said Senator Gillibrand. “New Yorkers are already feeling the devastating economic impact of COVID-19, and this funding from the CARES Act is a promising step toward restoring business, tourism, and mobility. I will always fight for resources that help our communities grow and thrive.”
