Press Release
Congressman Chris Collins Announces FAA Grant for Canandaigua Airport
August 22, 2013
 
Congressman Chris Collins (NY-27) announced today that the Canandaigua Airport will receive a grant from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). The $63,000 grant will allow the airport to conduct an environmental study and assessment related to proposed development on the site (East Apron General Aviation Complex).
 
“Supporting local governments with the cost of maintaining, repairing and building critical infrastructure is an appropriate use of federal tax dollars,” said Collins.  “Local taxpayers send a lot of their hard-earned money to Washington and it is only proper that we get a share of it back to assist with projects that are important to our local communities.”
 
The Congressman’s office remains available to assist any local government pursuing a federal grant.
