NEW YORK -- Governor Cuomo announced $2.9 million in grant funding for New York's military bases. According to Cuomo, the money will protect the bases that were so fundamental during Superstorm Sandy.

Close to home, the Stratton Air Base is getting $125,000 for the 109th Airlift Wing’s polar missions. They are the only air base in the country that can airlift cargo to polar bases.

Meanwhile, the Watervliet Arsenal will receive $300,000 for research and manufacturing. State leaders say this grant will also protect the thousands of jobs these bases provide New Yorkers.
