The Columbus Urban League Claimed Some Unallowable Costs to Head Start

The Columbus Urban League claimed unallowable Federal reimbursement totaling $13,000 for unreasonable costs associated with travel and attendance for an out-of-State conference. In addition, although the grantee generally followed an acceptable methodology for allocating administrative and executive staff salaries, it inappropriately used a 2-week time period when calculating its monthly employee activity because it did not establish adequate financial procedures and controls.

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 provided an additional $1 billion to expand the head Start program during fiscal years 2009 and 2010.
