STROUDSBURG Dec. 6 – State Rep. Maureen Madden, D-Monroe, announced today that the Pocono Mountains Municipal Airport was awarded $30,000 in grant funding.

 

The funding will be used to acquire necessary equipment to maintain the airfield. The Pocono Mountains Municipal Airport is one of 26 airports across the state to receive a combined total of more than $6 million in state grants.
