NEW YORK (AP) The Latest on the National Puerto Rican Day Parade in New York (all times local):

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo says he's returning to Puerto Rico to help rebuilding efforts after Hurricane Maria.

Speaking Sunday at the National Puerto Rican Day Parade, Cuomo says he's also appointing a commission to oversee the construction of a memorial to victims of the 2017 storm.

The memorial will be located in Manhattan's Battery Park City.

Cuomo, a Democrat, said more than 300 students from state-run colleges will travel to Puerto Rico over the summer to help the recovery.
