We audited the Harrisburg Housing Authority’s (Authority) administration of its Public Housing Capital Fund grant that it received under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act). We selected the Authority for audit because the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) awarded the Authority a $4.4 million formula grant. Our audit objective was to determine whether the Authority administered the grant funds provided under the Recovery Act according to Recovery Act requirements and applicable HUD rules and regulations. We found that the Authority generally administered its grant according to Recovery Act requirements and applicable HUD rules and regulations. However, it did not accurately enter job creation information into the appropriate Federal reporting Web site. We recommend that HUD require the Authority to develop and implement controls to ensure that Recovery Act job creation data it enters into the Federal reporting Web site are accurate.
