(CNSNews.com) – The Housing and Urban Development Department (HUD) announced the release of $42 million in federal funding for mortgage counseling, including to groups such as La Raza, the Urban League, and the National Community Reinvestment Coalition.
“The HUD-approved counseling agencies this funding supports are crucial in helping struggling families on a one-to-one basis to manage their money, navigate the homebuying process, and secure their financial futures,” HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan said on a conference call Friday.
However, some of those “HUD-approved” groups include well-known liberal activist organizations.
One such group, the National Council of La Raza – a Spanish word that translates to “the Race” – received approximately $1.7 million from HUD. La Raza has long supported so-called comprehensive immigration reform that would effectively grant amnesty to the estimated 12 million illegal immigrants in America.
Another liberal group, the National Urban League, received approximately $1.05 million in HUD funds. The Urban League is one of America’s oldest civil rights organizations with a long history of social justice initiatives. Recently, it has denounced voter ID laws as “voter suppression by another name.”
