Basically this audit states what we saw in the federal audit. The city lacks the capacity to handle the millions of dollars of government money poured into the city and through this mismanagement the urban core has lost out.

The main findings were that almost of the non-profits who are trusted to spend the money to rehab and provide affordable housing used their own construction companies to rehab and build. They did not record mortgages for the recipients, there is not adequate paperwork to prove the selection process of the recipients of the housing services were qualified to receive it. Actually, it stated that they didn't even know if, in some cases, these services went to people who actually lived in the houses ie. investors perhaps got the program resources instead of grandma.

The report also says that the city knew these problems existed and did nothing.
