Senator Joseph Griffo and Assemblymen Anthony Brindisi and Brian Miller are announcing funding to support local military assets.

The Griffiss Local Development Corporation will receive $500,000 to help with construction of a new headquarters for NYSTEC in Rome.

Oneida County will get $450,000 to help support an unmanned aerial systems test facility and $50,000 will go to the Central New York Defense Alliance.

The Alliance helps to protect federal assets if a BRAC were to occur.

The funding is part of  $3 million the lawmakers secured in the 2018-19 state budget to strengthen military facilities across the state.
