PATERSON — A non-profit prison re-entry program housed in a Paterson building at the center of an FBI investigation is moving mid-December to another facility nearby to accommodate more people.

The FBI raided Paterson city offices earlier this month searching for documents related to the renovation of a Montgomery Street property where the non-profit New Jersey Re-Entry Corporation is located.

Gov. James McGreevey, who helps administer the program, acknowledged Tuesday that the investigation “expedited” the non-profit’s relocation, but that the organization had planned on moving to another space to help more people.

“It expedited our plans as we had the intention of developing or providing increased space to accommodate a greater number of clients,” McGreevey said. “It seemed an appropriate time to secure a different site.”
