Pursuant to 24 CFR 1000.502 (b) where the recipient is a TDHE, did the TDHE provide periodic progress reports including the self-monitoring report, Annual Performance Report, and audit reports to the Tribe?:  YES
Did you conduct self-monitoring, including monitoring sub-recipients?:  YES
Self-Monitoring Results: Describe the results of the monitoring activities, including corrective actions planned or taken.  The self-monitoring process included a review of: the 2019 APR, the 2020 IHP, the 2020 APR draft, the quarterly SF-425's for the IHBG program, the 2020 IHBG budget, the individual program policies, a sample of individual participant and applicant files for each program, inspection reports for tribally owned homes, an identified case of submission of falsified documents by a participant, and other housing related topics. During the program year, the Housing Program Manager discovered a participant in the Tenant Based Rental Assistance Program had submitted a falsified leasing document for a home he was illegally subleasing. The participant also submitted a falsified W-9 on two occasions for individuals that the participant represented to be the owner/manager of the rental home. Once the fraudulent activity was discovered, the tribe temporarily suspended the participant from the program, and following Tribal Council review, disqualified the participant completely from the program and future housing program participation after providing tribal due process including right to a hearing and appeal. The tribe is currently taking steps to recoup the funds from the participant through potential per capita garnishment until repaid in full. The Housing Department has also strengthened the Rental Assistance procedures for obtaining the W-9 forms through direct contact with owners/landlords to reduce the likelihood of an issue such as this occurring in the future, as recommended by the tribe's Corrective Action Plan. There were no specific findings because of the self-monitoring review of the FIGR 2020 IHP. There were no other corrective actions planned or taken, nor any specific findings as a result of the self-monitoring process.
