The objectives of the audit were to determine whether the State of North Carolina distributed and spent State Homeland Security Program and Urban Area Security Initiative grant funds (1) effectively and efficiently, and (2) in compliance with applicable Federal laws and regulations, as well as with DHS guidelines governing the use of such funding. We also addressed the extent to which funds enhanced the State of North Carolina’s and the Charlotte Urban Area’s ability to prevent, prepare for, protect against, and respond to natural disasters, acts of terrorism, and other manmade disasters. The State of North Carolina received grant awards of approximately $61 million in State Homeland Security Program and Urban Areas Security Initiative grant funds for fiscal years 2008 through 2010.
