HUD OIG is auditing HUD’s oversight and monitoring of Disaster Recovery Grantees deemed slow spenders. The United States Government Accountability Office (March 2019 report titled Disaster Recovery – Better Monitoring of Block Grant Funds is Needed) found that HUD did not have the guidance and monitoring plans it needs to provide adequate grantee oversight of Community Block Develop Grants Disaster Recovery funds for 2017 hurricanes. The audit objective is to determine whether HUD provided effective and efficient oversight and monitoring of its slow spending disaster grantees and identify the root cause of grantee delays in expending funds.
