USVI 2017 CDBG DR Matching Program 07/2022 Administering Disaster Assistance Community Planning and Development All

Summary

HUD OIG is auditing the Virgin Islands Housing Finance Authority's 2017 CDBG Disaster Recovery Match Program. After hurricanes Irma and Maria devastated the Islands in September 2017, HUD awarded USVI $1.14 billion in CDBG-DR funds. Of the total award, $415,750,000 was budgeted to the match program. The match program matches HUD funds with other agencies, such as FEMA, to address unmet recovery needs. The audit objective is to determine whether the Authority effectively administered its CDBG-DR match program by identifying and assessing any challenges the Authority experienced that hindered its ability to achieve program goals.
