Governor Andrew Cuomo has announced more than $220 million in federal grants that will support counterterrorism and emergency preparedness activities in counties across New York State.

Oneida County will get nearly $265,000, Madison County will receive about $125,000 and Herkimer County will get almost $90,000..

The funding is provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency through its Homeland Security Grant Program.

Cuomo says the funding will help communities prevent, respond to and recover from manmade and natural disasters and emergencies.

"The safety and security of New Yorkers is the number one priority of this administration, and we will continue to ensure our first responders receive the very best training and equipment, as we focus on statewide preparedness to keep our communities safe," said. "This federal funding is essential to every county across the state, and I thank our local, state and federal officials for helping bring these grants to New York, as we work to protect visitors and residents in the Empire State."
