Counties receive federal funds to boost lake border control

Rochester Business Journal
August 26, 2013

Monroe County will get $160,558 in federal funding, and Orleans and Wayne counties will get a combined sum of nearly $180,000 to enhance border protection at entry points on Lake Ontario.

Orleans will get $109,701 and Wayne will get $69,400 through the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency.

The funding is included in $1.7 million allotted for New York from $55 million budgeted in fiscal 2013 Homeland Security grant programs.

The programs are designed to enhance cooperation and coordination among local, tribal, territorial, state and federal law enforcement agencies to secure U.S. borders along points of entry along international borders, said a statement Friday from the office of U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y.
