WASHINGTON (WKBW) — New York Senators Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand announced Upstate New York will receive over $2.2 million in federal funding to combat coronavirus.

The money would be provided by the Department of Health and Human Services for Western New York, Central New York, the Capital Region, Rochester, Hudson Valley, and North Country.

“This funding puts dollars in the hands of health centers and professionals who risk their lives and health every day during this crisis,” said Senator Schumer. “New York is seeing more and more confirmed cases and more and more deaths each day, and our health workers are on the frontlines of the fight to treat the growing number of coronavirus patients in our hospitals. I have fought tooth and nail to get New York’s health workers the federal funding they need to beat back this pandemic, and I will do whatever it takes in the coming weeks to keep the support flowing.”

“New Yorkers are at the epicenter of COVID-19 and we need to support our frontline workers in this fight” said Senator Gillibrand. “This federal and state funding will help provide health centers with the resources needed to treat patients and save lives. I will continue fighting in the Senate for the resources our health care workers need during this pandemic.”
