SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - Housing authorities in five central New York counties are getting $5.4 million in funding from the federal government.

The grants are being allocated through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Capital Fund Program and will be used to modernize and develop public housing.

U.S. Senators Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand say the money will help support affordable housing initiatives throughout central New York that help needy families, the elderly, and the disabled find affordable places to live.

Onondaga County will receive the bulk, just over $3 million, and neighboring Oneida and Madison Counties will receive $1.7 million. Cortland County is in line for $442,000, and Cayuga County nearly $76,000.
