We audited the City of New York, Office of Management and Budget’s administration of its Temporary Disaster Assistance Program (TDAP) funded with Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) funds provided by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to assist in the disaster recovery and rebuilding efforts resulting from Hurricane Sandy.  The disaster recovery funds were authorized by Congress under the Disaster Relief Appropriations Act of 2013.  This review included the disbursement of approximately $4 million in CDBG-DR funds pertaining to the City’s program.  The objectives of the audit were to determine whether the City (1) disbursed CDBG-DR funds for eligible activities in accordance with TDAP guidelines established under the HUD-approved action plan, action plan amendments, applicable Federal requirements, and City policy, and (2) developed a housing plan to ensure that at the end of the 2-year subsidy period, residents would remain stably housed.

City officials generally disbursed CDBG-DR funds for TDAP in accordance with guidelines established under the HUD-approved action plan, action plan amendments, and applicable Federal requirements.  The City also approved and denied TDAP applications in accordance with the City’s policies and procedures for the program.  In addition, it developed a housing plan to ensure that at the end of the 2-year subsidy period, residents would remain stably housed.
