The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development is threatening to take back $7.4 million in grants from Westchester County, N.Y. 

The county has been teetering on the edge with HUD and will lose the money if it fails to submit a report analyzing whether zoning in Westchester County perpetuates segregation, news source lohud.com reports.

"In light of the fact that the county has been on notice about these deficiencies now for years, HUD cannot at this point simply accept general promises of future performance but rather expects that the county will substantively comply with the requirements HUD has set forth," said Vincent Hom, director of Community Planning and Development.
