The unit is also investigating Connectinc.'s president, Jackie Savage, said Jennifer Canada, a spokeswoman for the N.C. Department of Justice.
The investigation began Feb. 24 and is ongoing.
Savage did not return a call seeking comment on Tuesday.
Kevin Zimmer, Connectinc's interim executive director, declined to comment.
David Bruton, the chairman of the nonprofit's board, said he has been instructed not to comment on the investigation until it is complete.
