We audited the Wilmington Housing Authority's administration of its Public Housing Capital Fund Recovery Act-Funded Formula and Competitive Grants that it received under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act). We selected the Authority for audit because it received a $5.2 million Public Housing Capital Fund Formula (Recovery Act-Funded) grant and two Public Housing Capital Fund Competitive (Recovery Act-Funded) grants totaling $13.6 million, which was the largest formula grant and the largest amount of capital fund competitive grants awarded in the State of Delaware. Our audit objective was to determine whether the Authority administered capital funds provided under the Recovery Act according to the requirements of the Recovery Act and applicable U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) rules and regulations. We found that the Authority generally administered its capital fund grants according to the requirements of the Recovery Act and applicable HUD rules and regulations. The report did not contain any findings.
