PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - A deadline has passed for Rhode Island Housing to pay a $1.2 million penalty the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development imposed for the agency’s failure to properly oversee finances at a homeless facility that recently shut down in Pawtucket.

An audit by Gayle A. Corrigan, Rhode Island Housing’s deputy director, found that Safe Haven in Pawtucket owed HUD $125,646 for one grant period

The Providence Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1gE23RO) that a HUD spokeswoman says the deadline has been extended by a few weeks to review documentation from Rhode Island Housing.
