THE BRONX - The first federal funds have been approved to help New York City recover from Superstorm Sandy.

Sen. Charles Schumer and Sen. Kristen Gillibrand say the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is sending $75 million to the NYPD to cover extra staffing costs. New York University Medial Center will also be receiving $114 million to repair damage.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo was in Washington D.C. Monday making his pitch for $42 billion in federal aid, including about $9 billion to be used for preventative measures against another major storm.
