Oct 2017. DHS\OIG. FEMA Should Disallow $246,294 of $3.0 Million in Public Assistance Grant Funds Awarded


Newly Released

The latest DHS OIG report is available on our website.


FEMA Should Disallow $246,294 of $3.0 Million in Public Assistance Grant Funds Awarded to Lincoln 

FEMA should disallow $246,294 of grant funds that the County spent on ineligible activities or did not support with adequate documentation. The County claimed $235,662 of direct administrative costs that were ineligible or unsupported. County officials said this occurred because they received inconsistent guidance from FEMA Region VII officials. FEMA Region VII officials acknowledged that applicants need clearer guidance to understand eligibility and support requirements for direct administrative costs.
The County also claimed $10,632 of overstated material costs because of a clerical error. County officials acknowledged the error and agreed that FEMA should disallow those funds. After the exit conference, FEMA provided evidence it disallowed the ineligible material costs. Read Report No. OIG 17-118-D
