Maloney Announces Over $2.3M Investment for Stewart International Airport 

Newburgh, NY – Today, Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18) announced Stewart International Airport has been awarded over $2.3 million in Coronavirus Relief and Response Supplemental Appropriations (CRRSA) Act funding. The grant provides economic relief funds for costs related to operations, personnel, cleaning, sanitization, debt service payments, and more.

 Stewart International Airport is a key part of our local economy here in the Hudson Valley. Ensuring they get the federal support they need is essential as our community works to recover from the economic impact of COVID-19,” said Rep. Maloney. “This is just one of many ambitious investments we’re making to revitalize our nation’s airports and infrastructure in the wake of this pandemic.”

 “Since the beginning of the pandemic, the Port Authority of NY & NJ has worked diligently to implement best in class health and safety standards at New York Stewart International Airport,” said Huntley A. Lawrence, Acting Chief Operating Officer & Director, Aviation Department at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. “This grant provides crucial support that allows us to maintain rigorous health and safety standards in order to protect frontline workers and the traveling public as we emerge from the pandemic. We thank Congressman Maloney for his support of New York Stewart during these unprecedented times, and we look forward to continuing our work to prioritize the health and wellbeing of all of our customers and airport employees.” 

 Since coming to Congress, Rep. Maloney has helped secure over $7.4 million for Stewart International Airport, in addition to over $4 million from the American Rescue Plan alone. In 2017, he announced $1,633,044 to continue rehabilitation of Stewart’s runway. In 2016 and 2014, he announced investments in Stewart’s runway totaling $1,717,911 and $1,859,650 respectively. 

Rep. Maloney serves on the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, as well as the Agriculture Committee and the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.
