“This CARES Act funding will be very helpful in revitalizing our communities in Lake George and the St. Regis Mohawk Tribe community,” said Congresswoman Stefanik in the release. “I was proud to vote in favor of the CARES Act, which continues to bring much needed direct funding to our communities as they respond to the COVID-19 pandemic and strengthen their economies. I will continue to advocate in Congress for programs like these that provide direct assistance to our North Country communities.”
