PEEKSKILL, N.Y. – A Peekskill nonprofit under investigation for the alleged improper award of a home improvement grant to Drew Claxton, the city’s deputy mayor, has denied the charge, according to lohud.com.

Alan Steiner, board chairman of the Preservation Co. Inc., said the grant was “actually” awarded to Claxton’s son, even though her name was on the mortgage agreement, according to lohud.com.

A spokesman for the Department of Housing and Urban Development said that elected officials and their relatives are typically not allowed to benefit from such grants and that the homeowner awarded the grant must make the property a primary residence, according to lohud.com.
