Feds question $840,000 in Knox County housing grants

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A federal review of a Knox County grant program is raising questions about $840,000 awarded through a Community Development Block Grant program.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has told the county it must repay more than $33,000.

The review said the county failed to ensure that its staff complied with federal conflict-of-interest regulations.

The money was granted to Family Securities to provide health education services to low-income households.
