FEMA Should Disallow $2.0 Million of $3.59 Million Awarded to Stratford, Connecticut

Executive Summary

We determined the Town did not always account for and expend FEMA grant funds according to Federal regulations and FEMA guidelines.  Therefore, FEMA should disallow $2.0 million of $3.59 million in grant funds awarded to the Town.  We made four recommendations to the Regional Administrator, FEMA Region I, to disallow ineligible or unsupported costs and improve the State’s grant management activities.
