New York is getting $240 million to help with its anti-terrorism efforts, a $34 million increase over last year, Senator Charles Schumer announced today.

“New York is the nation’s top terrorist target and is now being treated as such by the federal government,” said Schumer.  “These significant increases in counter-terrorism funding over last year’s allocations means that NYPD and State law enforcement can continue to do the superior job they do keeping us safe.”

The money will go towards two programs, the Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI) and State Homeland Security Program (SHSGP). The New York metropolitan area is set to receive $174.2 million in UASI funds, and New York State’s government will get $11.1 million from the SHSGP.
