Grant helps prosecute mortgage scammers

The Board of Supervisors Public Safety Committee is expected to approve more than $1 million in grant money to help prosecute those involved in mortgage and investment fraud.

The District Attorney’s Office applied for and received from the U.S. Justice Department a grant worth $1,066,026 from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The money goes toward a program called Mortgage and Investment Fraud Prosecution and Education Project, which began Aug. 1 and runs through July 31.

The committee meeting begins at 10 a.m. today at City Hall, Room 250.
