Project New Life Community Development to file a complaint with the Wisconsin Attorney Generals Office and the U.S. Department of Justice against the City of Racine’s Department of City Development.
Project New Life will file a complaint alleging the Department of City Development has exhibited official misconduct , public integrity and violated civil rights of minority agencies that manage grant resources throughout the City of Racine.  A class-action lawsuit is also being considered as an option to eliminate the on-going disparity and poor administration by the Department of City Development in grant resource opportunities between majority and minority owned agencies.
Included in the complaint is the unreasonable, biased and targeted effort of the Racine Department of City Development to “Blacklist” minorities agencies receiving funding to re-direct City funding to non-minority agencies.  This process of collusion ultimately eliminates these agencies for consideration of future funding opportunities and creates a disparity in the funding market.  Inequalities in grant management and scrutiny of minority agencies compared  with non-minority agencies is also a factor that is part of the complaint to be investigated.  Project New Life’s request to the Department of City Development for a qualified low-income veteran to occupy the property located at 1017 Marquette Street on a lease-purchase agreement was rejected by the Department of City Development.  There is no substantiated or material grounds for the rejection of this proposed plan that would have allowed the property to be occupied by a qualified, low-income potential homebuyer while providing them the best opportunity to secure a loan for purchase in the primary lending market.

A news conference to announce the filing of the complaint is scheduled for next month and will be provided to all media outlets shortly
