The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Office of Inspector General, reviewed the Housing Authority of the City and County of Denver, CO (Authority), because it had the largest number of low-rent and Section 8 units and received the largest amount of American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act) capital funds of all of the housing authorities in HUD's Region VIII (Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota). The objectives of our review were to determine whether the Authority obligated and expended its formula Recovery Act capital funds in accordance with Recovery Act rules and regulations and whether it properly reported Recovery Act information in federalreporting.gov. The Authority generally followed Recovery Act rules and regulations in the obligation and expenditure of its formula Recovery Act capital funds. However, it did not accurately report required Recovery Act capital fund grant information in federalreporting.gov.
We recommend that the Denver Office of Public Housing assist the Authority in receiving formal training on how to properly report Recovery Act information in federalreporting.gov.
