From the Introduction: "As part of the Office of Inspector General's (OIG) effort to provide oversight of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's (HUD) relief efforts provided by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act), we reviewed HUD's responses to inquiries regarding forbearance and foreclosure relief. The objective of our review was to evaluate the accuracy of HUD's responses to inquiries from borrowers, industry partners, and the general public regarding forbearance and foreclosure relief provided by the CARES Act. We found that HUD could improve its customer service to borrowers, industry partners, and the general public by providing more direct, accurate, and complete responses to their inquiries."
