Audit of Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration's Primary Risks for Major Disasters Preparedness and Response
The Additional Supplemental Appropriations for Disaster Relief Act, 2019 (P.L. 116-20), enacted June 6, 2019, included $322 million in emergency supplemental funding to HHS. Within HHS, the Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) was appropriated $100 million for Health Surveillance and Program Support for grants, contracts, and cooperative agreements for behavioral health treatment, treatment of substance use disorders, crisis counseling, and other related helplines, and for other similar programs to provide support to individuals impacted by a covered disaster or emergency. Our objective will be to identify SAMHSA's potential risks for preparing for and responding to hurricanes and other natural disasters and to determine whether SAMHSA had designed and implemented controls and strategies to mitigate these potential risks.
