ABSTRACT

Puerto Rico Department of Housing Did Not Properly Administer $90.79 Million of FEMA Grant Funds Awarded for the New Secure Housing Program   [open pdf - 652KB]

From the Highlights: "The Puerto Rico Department of Housing received two Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) grant awards totaling $186.13 million to implement the New Secure Housing Program following Hurricane Georges in September 1998. In August 2012, the Puerto Rico Department of Housing submitted final expenditure claims totaling $184.34 million. FEMA requested that we audit these claims to facilitate closeout of the grants. [...] FEMA should disallow the $90.79 million of ineligible costs unless the Department provides additional documentation to show the costs are eligible. FEMA should also remind Puerto Rico Emergency Management Agency of its grant management responsibilities so that it can work to improve its monitoring of FEMA subgrants."
