HUD clears up confusion over 'extra' $18M in Lumbee account

Filed Under: Recognition
More on: gao, hud, lumbee, north carolina
     

The Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina does not have an extra $18 million in federal funds, the Department of Housing and Urban Development clarified.

Some tribal leaders claimed the money was sitting unused in a tribal account. But HUD explained that the $18 million figure came from the tribe's line of credit control system (LOCCS) account, which is counted against the funds the tribe has been allocated.

In this case, the Lumbees have been allocated around $13 million. That means they only have about $4 million left for the current fiscal year.

"This is not the shocker that it first appeared to be," a HUD spokesperson told The Fayetteville Observer.
