Abstract Coastal Family Health Center (Coastal) is a nonprofit agency that operates a network of nine health centers throughout Mississippi. Coastal provides medical, dental, and mental health services and is funded primarily by patient service revenues and Federal grants. During calendar years (CY) 2009 and 2010, HRSA awarded Coastal approximately $6.3 million in grant funding under the Recovery Act. Of this amount, HRSA awarded $3.3 million in CY 2009 that included $1.4 million under an HIT grant to include more clinics in Mississippis common health electronic medical records (EMR) system, $1.3 million under a CIP grant to renovate four health facilities, and $596,904 under an IDS grant to increase access and reduce barriers to health care within Coastals service area. HRSA awarded the remaining $3 million in CY 2010 under another HIT grant to include more of Coastals clinics in the common EMR system and to enhance the existing EMR system and patient management system. Our objective was to determine whether Coastal claimed costs that were allowable under the terms of the grants and applicable Federal regulations.
