City Probes Harlem Group Overseeing Thousands of Affordable Housing Units

(DNAINFO) James Fanelli and Jeff Mays | November 4, 2016 — The inquiry began after the nonprofit fired its president and chief financial officer.

City investigators have opened a probe into a 30-year-old nonprofit that has developed and operated thousands of affordable housing units in Harlem, DNAinfo New York has learned.

The Department of Investigation probe began after the nonprofit, Harlem Congregations for Community Improvement, did its own internal review of alleged fiduciary misconduct by its CEO and president, Derek Broomes, and chief financial officer, Maria MacLoraine, according to sources. The nonprofit gave both Broomes and MacLoraine the ax in April, sources said.

One source close to the nonprofit who asked not to be named to protect working relationships said Broomes’ actions as president were the basis for the ongoing DOI investigation.
