Indian Health and Human Services

Improving Health and Well-Being in American Indian and Alaska Native Communities Through Compliance

Compliance Tools Trainings

HHS funds AI/AN programs in Indian Country that provide critical health and human services, such as Head Start and Low Income Home Energy Assistance programs. Unfortunately, vulnerabilities and breakdowns in an organization's processes can divert program funds intended to improve the health and well-being of AI/AN communities, disrupt the services these programs offer, and leave them vulnerable to fraud and abuse.

Using internal controls and understanding the results of a Single Audit can help protect against these vulnerabilities. Internal controls help to protect your organization from fraud, waste, and abuse and will help your program achieve its objectives and goals to serve your community. Single Audits, required for Tribes and non-Federal entities that expend $750,000 or more annually, examine both financial statements and compliance with Federal award requirements. A Single Audit is a tool you can use to measure your compliance with rules and regulations for Federal awards. Learn more about internal controls and Single Audits by taking the trainings below.
