INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - U.S. Sen. Dan Coats says $5 million in federal homeland security grants will be used well in Indiana.

Coats announced Tuesday that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security was releasing the money to Indiana to be used for disaster preparation.

The state will receive two grants to help it prepare for any potential terrorist attacks, major disasters or other emergencies. The state will receive a $1 million Urban Area Securities Grant and $4 million from the State Homeland Security Grant Program.

Coats is the ranking Republican on the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Homeland Security.
