In response to an Office of Management and Budget memorandum, HRSA grant recipients located in areas in which a major disaster was declared because of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, or Maria will have their Single Audit Reports (SAR) deadlines extended by 12 months.

Single Audit Report (SARs) Requirement

The Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) — 45 CFR, Part 75, Subpart F — requires grant recipients to submit Single Audit Reports.

Normally, the due date for submitting SARs to the Federal Audit Clearinghouse (FAC) is within nine months of your organization's fiscal-year end.

However, affected grant recipients will now have 21 months following their fiscal-year end to submit their SARs to the FAC.
