Hunter College honored Joseph Gallagher with its Aronson Award for Social Justice for his reporting in The Hunts Point Express, in a ceremony on May 3 that also included awards to a group of outstanding professional journalists for far-reaching investigative reporting and commentary.

The judges praised Gallagher’s investigative reporting of federal stimulus money, which disclosed that the government’s claim that it was providing new funds to an economically-depressed neighborhood were false, and that instead, the money was just a re-branding of funds long provided to housing, health and educational organizations.
