New York state is getting nearly $26 million in federal funds to reimburse law enforcement agencies for costs associated with guarding President Donald Trump, his family, and their Manhattan residence, reports the Associated Press.
Congresswoman Nita Lowey announced the grants Wednesday. She says the money covers costs incurred during the 2 1/2 months between Election Day and the Republican president's Inauguration Day.
The New York Police Department is getting $18.9 million. The Suffolk County Police Department is getting $7 million.
