Federal funding provided through ‘Bipartisan Infrastructure Law’s’ airport terminal program
Congressman Brian Higgins announced $7 million in federal funding, made possible through the “Bipartisan Infrastructure Law,” for the Buffalo Niagara International Airport. The award will be used to support upgrades to the heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system in the venue terminal.
“From buses and bridges to roads and airports, the ‘Bipartisan Infrastructure Law’ is making lasting investments right here in Western New York while creating good-paying jobs for local workers,” Higgins said. “Pursuit of these new resources by the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority is commendable and will build on ongoing work to enhance operations and the experience for all who visit the Buffalo Niagara International Airport.”
The “Bipartisan Infrastructure Law” included $5 billion over five years for a competitive grant program through the Federal Aviation Administration that funds improvements that upgrade, modernize or rebuild aging U.S. airport terminals. The Buffalo Airport is one of about 100 airports nationwide receiving a combined nearly $1 billion in this round of awards.
