Schumer: NY to get $6 billion in storm aid in '14

NEW YORK (AP) -- Sen. Charles Schumer says New York will get $6.3 billion in Superstorm Sandy aid in 2014.
The New York Democrat said Sunday that $1.4 billion in Community Development Block Grant funds will go directly to homeowners affected by the storm that struck the region one year ago.
He said $2.5 billion from the Federal Emergency Management Agency will go to New York communities in 2014 to pay for permanent projects as well as reimbursement for repairs already done.
Additionally, Schumer expects at least $1.5 billion in storm-related transportation projects in New York to receive funding.
Smaller pots of money will go to fund coastal protection projects, green infrastructure and health-related projects.
Schumer said another $207 million will be allocated to the Department of Veterans Affairs hospital in Manhattan.
