The director of a state agency overseeing millions of dollars in federal stimulus funds has quit.

Matt Turner, a spokesman for Gov. Joe Manchin, says Ed Harper resigned Friday from the Governor's Office of Economic Opportunity.

Turner told media Harper's letter gave no reason for his departure.

Charleston newspapers are reporting Harper could have issued grant funds inappropriately.

The agency handles federal funds that are distributed to community action agencies for weatherizing homes, literacy programs and help for the elderly.
