Senators Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand co-announced last week the allocation of over $2 million in federal funding to Syracuse Hancock International Airport.
The money will be used for the reconstruction of the airport’s deicing containment facility, as well as support the safe day-to-day operation of all its aircraft.
From the official announcement:
“This funding is awarded through the Airport Improvement Program and is administered by the FAA. The Airport Improvement Program provides grants to public agencies for the planning and development of public-use airports that are included in the National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems (NPIAS). Funds obligated for the AIP are drawn from the Airport and Airway Trust Fund, which is supported by user fees, fuel taxes, and other similar revenue sources.”
