Description
 
Hurricane Sandy struck the U.S. in Oct. 2012, causing an estimated $65 billion in damages. The Fed. Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) provides assistance to survivors through its Individuals and Households Program (IHP) and other programs. Part of its mission is to provide assistance quickly, but GAO identified weaknesses in FEMA's ability to do so while protecting government resources. Moreover, GAO's 2006 reports on Hurricane Katrina and Rita showed that FEMA did not consistently validate the identity of applicants or inspect damaged properties. This report discusses (1) the extent to which FEMA implemented controls to help prevent IHP payments that are at risk of being improper or potentially fraudulent; and (2) challenges FEMA and states faced obtaining information to help prevent IHP payments from duplicating or overlapping with other sources in its response to Hurricane Sandy. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
