    Tampa severs THAP relationship

    TAMPA -- The city officially cut its ties to the nonprofit Tampa-Hillsborough Action Plan on Thursday.

    The City Council approved an agreement to pay THAP more than $800,000 to end the nonprofit's relationship with the city.

    In addition to the buyout, the city also bought more than 150 properties that THAP had purchased with the city's backing to revitalize low-income neighborhoods.

    That arrangement collapsed after federal authorities opened an investigation into THAP's finances and its relationship with former city housing chief Steve LaBrake.

    The college of arts and sciences is USF's largest, with about 15,000 students.
