Description
 
In response to a congressional request, the Dept. of Justice (DOJ) Office of the Inspector Gen. (OIG) conducted this review to determine whether the DOJ had provided grants to the Assoc. of Community Organizations for Reform Now, Inc. (ACORN). This review examined whether: (1) ACORN applied for federal funds through DOJ-administered grant programs, (2) ACORN received federal funds through DOJ-administered grant programs, (3) controls were placed on the use of DOJ grant funds awarded to ACORN, and (4) DOJ conducted any reviews or audits of the use of DOJ grant funds awarded to ACORN. The review also conducted the same analysis for organizations we determined to be ACORN affiliates. The review did not find any direct DOJ grants to ACORN during the past 7 years. However, it found that one recipient of DOJ grant funds entered into a sub-agreement with ACORN for program activities. In addition, the review identified one direct grant of DOJ funds to an affiliate of ACORN. It also identified three instances in which a DOJ grantee entered into a sub-award with an ACORN affiliate. Thus, in total, this review found that ACORN and its affiliates received one direct grant and four sub-awards totaling approximately $200,000 between FY 2002 and 2009. In addition, during this period it determined that ACORN affiliates submitted five applications for DOJ grant funds that were denied. Figure.
