CAA releases statement on FBI raid

BOND HILL, OH (FOX19) - The FBI and the US Department of Energy Office of the Inspector General raided the Bond Hill headquarters of the Cincinnati-Hamilton County Community Action Agency on Thursday.

An FBI Spokesperson said that DOE agents led the raid in the CCA building in the 1700 block of Langdon Farm Road.

The same spokesperson told FOX19 that they are executing a search warrant; however, the search warrant is sealed.

The CAC issued the following statement on Friday:

Yesterday federal officials executed a search warrant at our building.  At question, are activities associated with the agency's weatherization program. We are looking into the allegations internally and are cooperating fully with officials.  This is an isolated matter pertaining solely to the weatherization department and does not affect any of CAA's other programs. Despite yesterday's events, we are open today. Head Start, HEAP's Summer Cooling Program and other programs are assisting families and clients as usual. When we learn more, we will be able to share more at that time.

CAC officials have no further comment until they learn more about the situation.

The CCA is a non-profit organization that aims to help low-income families with employment and housing, among other services.
