We reviewed the Louisville-Jefferson County Metropolitan Government’s administration of its Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing Program (HPRP) and Community Development Block Grant-Recovery (CDBG-R) program. We selected Louisville Metro for review because it received the largest grants in Kentucky with the exception of the State of Kentucky, and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) had not conducted monitoring of either grant. Our objective was to determine whether Louisville Metro administered its HPRP and CDBG-R grants in compliance with the requirements of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 and other applicable requirements. Specifically, our objectives were to determine whether Louisville Metro had adequate policies and procedures in place to ensure that (1) the program participants were eligible, (2) the program expenditures were supported with adequate documentation, (3) the program reporting requirements were met, and (4) the subgrantees were monitored and trained.
Louisville Metro generally complied with Recovery Act requirements for its HPRP and CDBG-R grants. The report contains no recommendations.
