Agency's lack of controls allowed director to steal from Cayuga Nation kids

 


Albany, NY—An investigation by the New York State Inspector General found that a lack of control procedures and adequate oversight of a state office that managed trust funds for native American children allowed a state employee to raid the funds.

The investigation found the lack of controls by the State Office of Children and Family Services Native American Services Bureau allowed the then-director to steal nearly $20,000 from 14 trust funds between 2007 and 2014.

The money was held in trust for children of the Cayuga Nation who do not live with their parents.
