Summary:

Some $556 million in federal community grant money received in 30 years by the city of Buffalo to revitalize neighborhoods and combat poverty was not spent on improving neighborhoods, according to documents obtained under FOIA by The Buffalo News. Much of the money went to pay salaries of city hall workers, pay off bad loans, build community centers, restore an arcade and develop an industrial park.
