"Three major hurricanes hit the United States between August and September of 2017. On September 8, 2017, the President signed the first Federal Disaster Assistance package of the 2017 hurricane season following Hurricane Harvey. On February 9, 2018, the President signed into law the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018, which provided disaster relief totaling approximately $89.3 billion. The Department of Health and Human Services received $5.97 billion ($1.07 billion for discretionary programs), of which the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) received $60 million. Our objectives were to identify HRSA's potential risks for preparing for and responding to hurricanes and other natural disasters and to determine whether HRSA has designed and implemented controls and strategies to mitigate these potential risks."
