On May 18, 2019, The Journal Tribune reported that Hancock County Planning Commission was, or may continue to be, a subject of a material diversion of assets in an article titled, "Employee charged with embezzling $100,000 from nonprofit." For this reason, we have issued a Moderate Concern CN Advisory as the allegations have yet to be confirmed. For more information regarding this matter, please see The Journal Tribune article.

This charity has received a Moderate Concern Advisory due to an open or pending investigation regarding allegations of possible illegal activity, improper conduct, organizational mismanagement, or other matters of concern.
