On July 29 Rep. Antonio Delgado announced that the Columbia County Airport in Ghent is getting $71,283 through the CARES Act, a COVID-19 relief bill. The Albert S. Nader Regional Airport in Oneonta and the Sullivan County International Airport in Monticello are also getting money in federal funding through the Department of Transportation and Federal Aviation Administration from the CARES Act. “Columbia County and it's Co. Airport management staff are very much appreciative of the recently announced Federal CARES ACT grant in the amount of $71,283, which will provide 100 percent of the funding for an Airport Pavement Management Program at the Columbia Co. Airport," said Matt Murell, Chair of the Columbia County Board of Supervisors. "This is most welcome Federal funding, especially given the significant negative impact to Columbia County's financial situation that the COVID-19 pandemic has caused this year.”
