Communities around New York state will share $5 million in federal funding for homeland security programs.

The grants will help fund police tactical teams, search and rescue operations, bomb dogs and selected infrastructure projects. Gov. Andrew Cuomo says the money will support state-of-the-art training and defense tactics.

The funding was announced Tuesday by Cuomo, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, and New York's congressional delegation.
