ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Federal officials are allocating $1.5 million to help fund six brownfield cleanup projects in upstate New York.

U.S. Sens. Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand said Thursday that the money will help communities clean up, redevelop and reuse contaminated properties.

Niagara County will receive $500,000 and Kingston will get $400,000 for two brownfield projects. Wappinger Falls, Rome and the St. Regis Mohawk Tribe in northern New York each will receive $200,000.

The funding comes from the Environmental Protection Agency’s Brownfields Program.
