ONEIDA COUNTY, N.Y--- Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente announcing that 1 million dollars of the county's general fund will go towards flood relief.

Picente said the funds were saved for situations such as this. 

The 1 million dollars will be split 50/50. 500,000 will go to help residents and local businesses affected by the flood. The other will go towards just municipal cleanup.

In order to apply to receive these funds, residents and businesses need to go through a process to see if they qualify to receive those funds.

Residents and businesses that qualify will receive the funds just for things that will get them back living in their homes. For example, replacing a furnace or a new water heater.

The county is setting up emergency centers starting on Monday where residents can go and apply for those funds.

All of the county's major offices will be at each of these sites to provide whatever aid and information they can. 

NEWSChannel 2 asked Picente whether 1 million dollars is going to be enough.

"I don't think that's ever going to be enough. We'll see if we have to do more, we will do more. When it comes to emergencies you can't put a price tag on it,  we have to fix and help our people get back into their homes," said Picente.

Here is the list of emergency center locations that will be open from 11 am to 4:30 pm until further notice.

Whitesboro Fire Dept, 171 Oriskany Blvd

West Canada Creek Estates, 12275, St. Rt. 28, Poland
