Rep. Maloney Applauds New Homeland Security Grant Guidelines
New York, NY – Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) today issued the following statement on the release of new standards for Homeland Security grants by the Department of Homeland Security:
“I am very pleased by Secretary Napolitano’s announcement today that New York City and other cities at the highest risk of terrorist attack will continue to receive the funding they need despite budget cuts. As Mayor Bloomberg and my New York congressional colleagues—of both parties—and I have long argued, New York continues to be a target and we should receive funding proportionate to the threat we’re facing. The change announced today reflects that reality.”
