Report fraud now via HHS Office of the Inspector General
As a grantee, you must comply with all financial requirements of your federal award.
Our responsibility is to manage the award. We do this to ensure you follow federal requirements.
Each year, we work with some of our federal recipients to return grant funds spent on unallowable costs. This impacts your ability to accomplish your important health mission.
Our tip sheet, Developing Effective Financial Management Practices (PDF - 209 KB), will help you avoid misspending grant funds.
Financial Health: Best Practices
Do you have the fiscal foundation to meet financial reporting requirements?
- Use allowable costs to carry out a HRSA-supported project or activity. Do not over inflate.
- Review the proposal for cost or budgetary limitations (especially for salaries).
- Submit line item budget and budget narrative for all years of the project period stated in the NOFO.
Effective Internal Controls
Effective internal controls prevent fraud, waste, and abuse.

The Financial Management Requirements for Award Recipients (PDF - 81 KB) reviews the 18 management control areas that you must include in your existing written procedures.
These areas help you manage federal awards and comply with regulatory standards.
