Federal regulations require that states pursue Aid to Families with Dependent Children overpayments made prior to October 1, 1996, and make appropriate refunds to the Federal Government. This final report points out that the State of Michigan had not made such refunds for overpayments collected ($15.3 million federal share) during the period July 1, 1996 through June 30, 2002. We recommended a financial adjustment for the $15.3 million and procedural corrections.
