CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval will decide later this week what to do with more than $3.4 million in grant money from the federal Department of Homeland Security.

The award was announced Tuesday. It’s $700,000 more than the state got from the department last year.

The Republican governor chairs the Nevada Commission on Homeland Security which is in charge of determining how to spend the money during its meeting on Friday.

Currently, the money is targeted toward ensuring that the Metropolitan Medical Response System and Citizen Corps programs continue with adequate funding.
