We audited the Virginia Housing Development Authority (Authority) because it received $44.2 million in Tax Credit Assistance Program (Program) funds under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act). The Authority received the second largest amount of Program funds awarded in Region III. Our objective was to determine whether the Authority administered its Program in accordance with Recovery Act and applicable U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requirements. The Authority generally administered its Program in accordance with Recovery Act and HUD requirements. However, the Authority did not obtain lobbying certifications as required by the Recovery Act. We recommended that the Authority obtain lobbying certifications from its Program contractors and subcontractors. It took immediate corrective action during the audit to obtain the required certifications.
