ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - New York state is receiving nearly $17 million to support AmeriCorps programs throughout the state.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo says the money will flow to 14 non-profit organizations to enlist some 1,440 AmeriCorps members.

The organizations are involved in promoting education and children’s health, disaster preparedness and other public services.

Cuomo says New York state’s AmeriCorps members do “critically important work” around the state by stepping up to serve their communities.

City Year, Inc. will receive the single largest portion of the funds, getting more than $3 million for academic tutoring and mentoring programs in New York City.
