ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A northwestern New Mexico pueblo and more than a dozen communities across the state are getting federal funding for airport rehabilitation and development projects.

The total of $6.1 million of Federal Aviation Administration grants announced Thursday by Sen. Tom Udall and Martin Heinrich include $3.1 million awarded to the Zuni Pueblo for construction of a new airport and related work.

The senators said the grants will help boost local economies by increasing travel access, support economic development and encourage business expansion.

Communities receiving grants include Truth or Consequences, Moriarty, Carrizozo, Hobbs, Las Cruces and Lordsburg.

Grants also were awarded to Ruidoso, Carlsbad, Spring, Vaughn, Hatch, Farmington, Espanola and Silver City.
