Audit (A-09-11-01003)

First A.M.E. Child Development Center's Head Start Program Governance Was Not Fully in Accordance With Federal Requirements

Executive Summary

First A.M.E. Child Development Center's (the Center) Head Start program governance was not fully in accordance with Federal requirements. A majority of board members, including the licensed attorney, did not attend all of the board of directors meetings. Because of the board members' lack of participation, the governing body may not have ensured active and informed governance of the Center or fully participated in the development, planning, and evaluation of the Center's Head Start programs.

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act) provided an additional $2.1 billion for the Head Start program during fiscal years 2009 and 2010. On July 1, 2009, the Center received $149,000 in Recovery Act funding.
