Congress passed and President Obama signed legislation last year banning federal grants and contracts to ACORN or any of its affiliates. Somebody should tell the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) about the ban.
Judicial Watch, the anti-corruption non-profit watchdog, said its investigation found a small grant – just over
$78,000 – from HUD to the Affordable Housing Centers of America (AHCOA) to “educate the public and housing providers about their rights and obligations under federal, state, and local fair housing laws.” The grant was awarded March 1, 2011.
