ABSTRACT

FEMA Has Paid Billions in Improper Payments for SBA Dependent Other Needs Assistance Since 2003   [open pdf - 2MB]

From the Document: "FEMA provides funds through its IHP [Individuals and Households Program] ONA [Other Needs Assistance] program to qualified applicants for necessary expenses and serious needs caused by a disaster. FEMA has expended $6.4 billion in Federal funds through its IHP ONA since 2003. Of this amount, about $5.3 billion, or 83 percent, went to the SBA Dependent ONA category -- based on applicants' self-reported income and dependent information. We performed this audit to determine to what extent FEMA verifies the accuracy of IHP applicants' self-certified income."
