The State of New York Did Not Ensure That Properties Purchased Under the Acquisition Component of Its Program Were Eligible

We audited the State of New York’s Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery-funded New York Rising Buyout and Acquisition program.  We initiated this audit due to concerns related to whether properties purchased were substantially damaged.  The objective of this audit was to determine whether the State ensured that properties purchased under the acquisition component of the program met applicable U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Federal, and State requirements.
