BALTIMORE (Legal Newsline) – Maryland Attorney General Brian E. Frosh announced Nov. 4 that his office filed a lawsuit against Sojourner-Douglass College Inc. over allegations of not repaying grant funds.

Frosh’s office seeks an accounting for grant funds awarded to the college and repayment of these funds totaling roughly $400,000. Frosh claims these funds were not used for their authorized purposes.

 

The college was purportedly given three state grants under a program entitled Nursing Support II. These grants mandated that Sojourner-Douglass provide annual and final reports, including financial reports that showed how grant money spent compared to grant money budgeted.

Unspent funds were supposed to be returned to the state. According to Frosh’s office, the college failed to file the necessary reports and has not returned any unspent funds, despite notifying the state it would not be able to perform the entirety of one of the grants.

 

“Any state grant funds not used for its intended purpose must be returned,” Frosh said. “The state of Maryland is rightfully owed the unspent and undocumented funds the college has not used.”
