ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - New York officials say $75 million in state grants will be available to 23 counties for improving their emergency communications systems.
Eligible counties are those that didn't get part of the $122 million in Statewide Interoperability Communications Grants given out in the first two rounds of funding.
They can apply for up to $6 million.
The focus is improving regional communications between counties and emergency responders across jurisdictions and among agencies.
Applications are due by Sept. 30 to the state Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Services.
