NETS $HOOTING FOR LOCAL HELP

Brooklyn United for Innovative Local Development (BUILD) was given $100,000 to develop outreach and job-training programs — and $38,000 to hire local residents to distribute Ratner's publication.

The Downtown Brooklyn Neighborhood Alliance (DBNA), founded by the Rev. Herbert Daughtry, got $50,000 to start-up a child-care, youth and senior facility.

"It is very, very clear that the developer . . . has the . . . wherewithal to buy a lot of people," said a project opponent, the Rev. Dennis Dillon.
