Sixty-eight after-school programs around New York state are set to get nearly $11 million in new funds from the state and federal government.
 
Gov. Andrew Cuomo's office announced the grants Thursday. The programs that received the grants provide three hours of after-school education, recreation and cultural opportunities to some 8,000 students.
 
Cuomo's office says after-school programs are a proven way of helping kids get extra help with classwork while forming friendships and staying out of trouble once the school day ends.
 
The 68 programs that will receive awards are located in counties around the state.
