Kane In Your Corner podcast - Audit confirms heating assistance investigation - listen here

Posted: Updated:

About $3 million in heating assistance that was supposed to go to low-income families may have gone to applicants who lied about their income, a state audit finds. The report from the NJ state auditor confirms concerns that were first raised in a KIYC investigation. In 2016, KIYC spoke to a whistleblower who described fraud he said he saw while working for the Low Income Heating Assistance Program. In this episode, Walt Kane and investigative producer Karin Attonito reflect on the long-term investigation.
