Error By The City Of Charlotte Cost Nonprofit $237,000

According to WCNC Charlotte, an error that was made by the city of Charlotte during the beginning of the pandemic cost University City Partners over $230,000 in grant money. This money would've been used to help small businesses respond to the impacts of Covid-19 in Charlotte's second-largest employment hub. This oversight was only discovered because of a WCNC Charlotte investigation. The city is now currently to fix the mistake. On Monday there will be a meeting held by the Charlotte City Council. The leaders are currently expected to approve the $237,500 for the University City Partners that should've been given in 2020. Media relations manager Lawrence Corley III stated "The scoresheets were completed and calculated by human beings and a mistake did occur. There was an error in the calculation when adding up the scoresheet. As part of this media inquiry, city staff initiated a review of both the 2020 and 2022 programs and identified the mathematical error." American Rescue Plan Act dollars will fund the grant to The University City Partners if approved Monday.
