Denver Megachurch Under Scrutiny

The Denver Post today published a front-page article on Heritage Christian Center, a large Pentacostal church run by one Bishop Dennis Leonard. It alleges certain financial improprieties and neopotism in Heritage's leadership:

Project Heritage, a nonprofit founded by the church, was faulted for squeezing too much profit out of a government program to help low-income families buy renovated homes. Leonard's daughter-in-law and the daughters of the board chairman earned real estate commissions on the home sales, which the government flagged as a conflict of interest.

Trying to find out more about "Project Heritage" like what exactly do they do? Are they buying houses for people or what... anybody know?

Thanks
