2022–2024 CCDF Plan Preprint Training Guide Section 8: Ensure Grantee Program Integrity and Accountability
Program integrity and accountability activities are integral to the effective administration of the CCDF program. In Section 8, Lead Agencies are required to describe in their Plan effective internal controls that ensure integrity and accountability while maintaining the continuity of services (98.16(cc)). These accountability measures address reducing fraud, waste, and abuse, including program violations and administrative errors. This section also includes topics on internal controls to ensure integrity and accountability and processes in place to investigate and recover fraudulent payments and to impose sanctions on clients or providers in response to fraud.
