NJ Private School to pay $469K for Allegedly Falsifying Claims
A private school in Hudson County, NJ, will have to pay $469,000 to the U.S. government for allegedly misappropriating money from the federal school lunch program. The allegations were brought against a non-profit corporation and private school called Mesivta Sanz in Union City for violations of the False Claims Act.
“Misappropriating money from the school lunch program defrauds our government and hurts the children who most need this program,” said U.S. Attorney Christopher Christie. “We will continue to work to protect programs which help our most vulnerable citizens.”
Mesvita Sanz, which provides elementary and secondary education, has a total of 314 students. It allegedly submitted false certifications for payment under the National School Lunch Program (NSLP), which provides nutritionally balanced, low-cost or free lunches to children each school day.
