Mattiello, Paiva Weed set to discuss grant program reforms Monday

“The grants right now are a political mess,” Mattiello told colleagues last month during a rare speech from the rostrum in which he vented his frustrations at perennial mess that is now in his hands to try to clean up.
The last big controversy was sparked by a 2012 state audit that found the Institute for International Sport could not account for how it spent most of a $575,000 grant it was given in 2007 to construct a building on the University of Rhode Island campus that remained unfinished years later.
