Brown: Fraud hotline, get your federal dollars

U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, seems to send me a new press release every five minutes or so. He must have a very busy staff.

The senator has a couple of useful public service announcements in two recent releases that I want to share with you.

Brown announced that there is a new fraud hotline to report “fraud, waste, abuse or mismanagement” of funds from the Troubled Asset Relief Program (better known as the “Wall Street bailout.”)

The phone number is 877-744-2009. Or submit a report online at this site.

Brown also announced that his Web site for information about the economic recovery program is being regularly updated. The site “now includes resources from federal agencies that participated in his Economic Recovery Seminar Tour. Brown’s page makes available PowerPoint presentations from the U.S. Departments of Agriculture (USDA), Energy (DOE), Labor (DOL), and General Services Administration (GSA) that were available at the recovery workshops Brown’s office held across the state.”

The site includes deadlines for various grants and information organized around various issues and programs.
