Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo announced the funding Monday. It will help affected communities repair flood walls, roads, sidewalks, culverts and public water and sewer infrastructure.

Ottawa and the provinces have failed to reach a deal on health-care funding, despite a $11.5-billion pledge by the federal government to boost targeted spending on home care and mental health.
The federal government has now taken that offer off the table, Finance Minister Bill Morneau said Monday, and the Canada Health Transfer (CHT) spending increase will revert to 3 per cent a year as of April 1, 2017.
