Results of Limited Scope Review at Heritage Health and Housing, Inc.
We reviewed the financial condition of Heritage Health and Housing, Inc. (Heritage), as part of a nationwide series of reviews of Community Action Agencies that have received funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act).
Based on our assessment, Heritage's financial viability may be adversely impacted by its financial condition in Fiscal Years 2006 through 2008. During this period, Heritage's expenditures exceeded operating revenues and current liabilities exceeded current assets. Moreover, while Heritage is generally capable of managing and accounting for Federal funds and operating a health center in accordance with Federal regulations, we noted issues related to Heritage's accounting system and to certain procedures, including cash management, procurement, and whistleblower protection. Finally, Heritage does not maintain inventory records or have written procedures for periodically performing a physical inventory. Heritage generally concurred with our findings and described its completed and ongoing actions to address the deficiencies we identified.
