Press Release

Washington, D.C. -  Congressman Chris Collins (NY-27) announced $124,767 in federal funding from the Federal Aviation Administration for the Genesee County Airport, located in Batavia. This grant will provide funding for the airport’s design phase of two major projects.

“Utilizing grant funding to support our local governments is a smart investment and a responsible use of federal tax dollars,” said Congressman Collins. “Investing in infrastructure projects like the Genesee County Airport’s pavement rehabilitation will significantly improve the quality, efficiency, and safety of its daily operations. These efforts will allow the Genesee County Airport to continue to grow and positively impact our local economy for years to come.”

The airport plans to reconstruct the existing west apron pavement, which has reached the end of its useful life. Additionally, the airport will remove a T-hanger building obstruction in the runway object free area to meet the Federal Aviation Administration design standards.

The Congressman’s office remains available to assist any local government pursuing a federal grant.
