The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Office of Inspector General audited King County, WA’s Shelter Plus Care program to determine whether King County met the matching requirements for its Shelter Plus Care grants.  We selected King County because it received the most Shelter Plus Care funding in HUD’s Region 10 (Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington).

While it was able to provide the necessary service match support for its 2011 sponsor-based grant, King County was not able to provide enough support for its two 2011 tenant-based Shelter Plus Care grants.  We recommend that HUD require King County to provide supporting documentation for the nearly $921,000 in unsupported match or repay HUD from non-Federal funds for any remaining unmatched grant funds.
