Hawaii-based Grantee ESG-CV Program Fraud Risk Management Assessment 07/2023 Managing Risk in Grant Programs Community Planning and Development Hawaii


HUD OIG is auditing a Hawaii-based grantee's Coronavirus, Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG-CV) program. The CARES Act provided nearly $4 billion in special ESG funds to grantees to prevent, prepare for, and respond to the coronavirus pandemic and supports activities, such as, rapid re-housing, homelessness prevention programs, and emergency shelters for people experiencing homelessness. Our objective is to assess the grantee's fraud risk framework, which encompasses control activities to prevent, detect, and respond to fraud.
