$5.9 Million Grant Awarded to Obama’s Pal

How should we interpret this?

The Urban Health Initiative, a University of Chicago Medical Center program tied to Michelle Obama and run by Obama family friend Eric Whitaker, has received nearly $6 million from the Department of Health and Human Services.

The UHI won out over lots of competition. According to HHS, some 3,000 applications were received for a share on the $1 billion in 3-year grants available. Only 26 programs were included in the first batch of awards doled out.— Keith Koffler, White House Dossier
