Eight Pennsylvania entities that received more than $10 million in federal stimulus money failed to complete mandatory quarterly reports showing how the money was spent.
The eight recipients — cities, counties, nonprofits and companies in the Keystone State — are listed as non-compliers on a federal website that tracks Recovery Act money and the projects for which it was used. Those entities failed to file reports by the end of last year’s fourth quarter, their requisite deadline.
Philadelphia Parks and Recreation — $1.7 million
Roads To Freedom Center for Independent Living — $347,000
Head Start Learning Tree — $476,000
Delaware County subcontracting with Boeing — $4.5 million
Somerset Villas, Inc. — $1.2 million
L.R. Costanzo, Inc. — $1 million
McKeesport (Allegheny County) — $500,000
EwingCole — $37,000
