Three Capital Region cities will be splitting nearly $ 2 million in state funds aimed at helping put an end to gun violence.

Albany will receive $ 950,000, Troy $ 700,000 and Schenectady $ 300,000 that can be used for youth job training and workforce development. The state Department of Labor is planning to work with community groups in the area to help find younger residents who can be trained and placed in permanent positions. Earlier this month, Governor Cuomo declared that gun violence is a public health crisis.
