Breaking - Fort Lauderdale Misspent Half of HUD Funds for Sole Housing Project

Tucked into this week's Fort Lauderdale City Commission Agenda is CM5, "Motion to Approve Payment to Broward County in Response to Housing and Urban Development Office of Inspector General Audit Findings of the Chronic Homeless Housing Collaborative Program - $42,669.99"

The item's description shows that a recent HUD audit of the City's only federally funded housing program misspent $274,206 of its total funding, which in 2015 was about $450,000. The City is already voting to pay back $42,000 as suggested by the federal audit.

Documents regarding this situation can be found here.
