Made available through the $2.9 billion Rebuild and Renew New York Transportation Bond Act, the funding will provide approximately $30 million for improvements in the first two-year round of funding through 2008. The remaining $46.4 million in funding will be made available from 2008 through 2010.

"We encourage all eligible airports to take advantage of these opportunities to improve their facilities and help their communities and customers in the process."
