HUD OIG is auditing Puerto Rico's Homebuyer Assistance Program (HBA).  HUD awarded Puerto Rico more than $20 billion in CDBG-DR funding to address the impact of Hurricanes Irma and Maria, of which $295 million was budgeted to the HBA program. Our objective is to determine the impact that the program had in increasing homeownership rates in Puerto Rico post Hurricanes Irma and Maria and whether it is on track in delivering the expected program outcome.
