Last month, 30 organizations were named as recipients of federal grants that range from $2,000 to $200,000 for individual organizations and up to $500,000 for coalitions of multiple organizations.

Existing grants still are being finalized and questions have been raised about some of those, including a small-business advocacy group with DFL ties and a broker who pleaded guilty to resisting arrest or obstructing an officer during a traffic stop in Wisconsin in 2011.

A MNsure spokesman said officials are in the final stage of reviewing the recipients — a process that includes looking at financial issues, conflicts of interest and other issues that might prohibit the award of government grants.
