We audited the City of Huntington Beach’s Community Development Block Grant program due to issues identified by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Los Angeles Office of Community Planning and Development. In addition, Office of Inspector General (OIG) data analytics identified timeliness issues with the use of program funding. We also selected the City because it had not been audited by OIG. Our objective was to determine whether the City administered its program in accordance with applicable HUD rules and requirements. Specifically, we wanted to determine whether its projects complied with program requirements.
The City administered its program funds in accordance with applicable HUD rules and requirements for the projects reviewed. The program-funded projects reviewed met program national objectives, and project activities were supported and met eligibility criteria. The City had addressed HUD’s monitoring concerns and timeliness issues.
There are no recommendations.
