(CNN)The Treasury Department has so far withheld in 2020 approximately $1. 5 million from a New York City Fire Department health care program for those who worked at Ground Zero following the September 11 terrorist attacks, according to letters from New York Rep. Peter King.

He wrote that the department apparently withheld the funding due to "a range of issues dealing with different New York City offices and programs that have nothing to do with the FDNY Clinic. "

The New York Daily News first reported that the Treasury Department withheld nearly $4 million over the past four years, including nearly $1. 5 million this year through late August.

Vaughan wrote that the Treasury Department is required to "offset" federal payments for debts owed to the US, and since New York City has a single taxpayer identification number that covers multiple programs, FDNY's World Trade Center Health Program offset the debt of another.

The Treasury Department is currently working with New York City to do so, according to a Trump administration official.
