New York State officials announced that a few million dollars will be made available in order to make improvements to airports.

Albany Airport is getting $1.4 million courtesy of the Aviation Capital Grant Program.

The funding is an extension of a big $200 million initiative announced by Governor Andrew Cuomo last year to make improvements at airports across the state.

Albany Airport will use the money to build a new solar array.

Back in August, the airport was granted $22 million to build a new parking garage and a new connector to the airport.
