Mayor's Office Says Seven Groups Haven't Documented Grant Spending

Mayor Greg Fischer's office has released the findings of a review of grant funds given to local nonprofits.

About 200 organizations received grants through Metro Council members' Neighborhood Development Funds in fiscal years 2010 and 2011. After controversies about how that money was being spent, Fischer announced the review, noting that it's in line with a city policy that was not previously enforced.

The mayor's office released a statement this morning saying seven groups did not turn in the proper paperwork to show how their city grants were spent.

  • Derby City Baseball
  • First Congregational Methodist Church
  • Family Healing Inc.
  • LIFE Institute
  • New Jerusalem Missionary Baptist Church
  • Women of Vision and Purpose
  • 100 Black Men of Louisville

The statement says the organizations can either provide documents or reimburse the city to again be in compliance with existing regulations and eligible to recieve more city funds. A review of fiscal year 2012's NDF spending will soon be underway.
