Associated Black Charities withdrew from a multimillion-dollar contract to dole out federal Ryan White HIV assistance funds in Baltimore after the city rebid the $16.35 million contract last year. The deal to serve as fiscal agent for the large grant went to a newly formed LLC based in Owings Mills. The change in fiscal agents was followed by a scathing audit of the Baltimore City Health Department released last week that found a lack of oversight and controls over the agency’s grant funding, including where and how much of the Ryan White program’s millions were spent. The audit also warned that such findings could potentially threaten the city’s ability to receive federal funding in the future.
