The US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Office of Inspector General audited the Mid-Willamette Community Action Agency’s (Agency) Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing Program (HPRP). Our objective was to determine whether the Agency disbursed HPRP funds and reported data in accordance with Recovery Act requirements. We found that the Agency paid for HPRP services without adequate supporting documentation for participant eligibility and expenses and did not always enter participant data accurately into the HPRP reporting system. We recommend that HUD require the Agency to provide supporting documentation for participant eligibility and expenditures or reimburse its program accounts $64,608, and to develop and implement a quality control plan to ensure that it verifies and documents the eligibility of HPRP participants and expenditures. In addition, we recommend that the Agency correct discrepancies in the HPRP reporting system and implement procedures to ensure that case managers enter accurate participant data.
