Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Elise Stefanik and Congressman Anthony Brindisi (D-NY-22) have announced federal infrastructure funding to repair roads and highways affected by the serious storms and flooding this past Halloween. Over $9 million in Emergency Relief Program Repair Projects funding will be awarded to the New York Department of Transportation to help rebuild the roads and highways that have been damaged. This funding is awarded through the U.S. Department of Transportation.
“We are encouraged that this federal assistance will be provided for our communities as they rebuild following the devastating weather events this past fall,” said Stefanik and Brindisi. “Much more work needs to be done in order to fully restore our communities and the individuals who were impacted by this disaster. We will continue to work to secure federal and state resources for North Country and Upstate New York residents until we are able to fully rebuild.”
