Carlisle Administration Forgave $1.2 Million in Loans to Nonprofit Accused of Misusing Federal Funds

Honolulu Mayor Peter Carlisle's administration forgave $1.2 million in city loans to the nonprofit elderly day-care center at the heart of a federal investigation into misuse of $7.9 million in grants, a Civil Beat investigation has found.

Federal investigators last month reported to Carlisle that Wahiawa-based ORI Anuenue Hale, Inc., violated federal Community Development Block Grant rules. Unless the city takes "immediate corrective action," it may have to return the federal funds.
