A-133 Pre-qualification Process

In taking a more proactive role as a pass-though entity, IHCDA is instituting a new policy for all of its award recipients who are subject to an A-133 audit. Starting for the December 31, 2010 year-end, all auditors performing A-133 work for IHCDA award recipients subject to an A-133 must be pre-qualified by IHCDA in order for IHCDA to accept the A-133 submitted by the award recipient. IHCDA developed the pre-qualification policy to address the many concerns IHCDA has experienced reviewing A-133 reports, such as wrong CFDA numbers, similar audit reports for two different agencies and subsequent agreed upon procedure reviews, contracted by IHCDA, reporting findings where the A-133 did not have any findings. Every accounting firm interested in performing A-133 procedures must complete IHCDA’s Mandatory Pre-Qualification Form. Pre-Qualification Form Pre-Qualification Letter List of Pre-Qualified Auditors

The SuperNofa (Notice of Funding) Continuum of Care Homeless Assistance Funding

  • In 1995, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) implemented the Continuum of Care approach to streamline the existing competitive funding and grant-making process under the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act and to encourage communities to coordinate more fully the planning and provision of housing and services for homeless people. 

    Annually, the Indiana Interagency Council on the Homeless (IAC) prepares the Indiana Balance of State Continuum of Care application for any regional Continuum of Care that desires to apply as a consortium of Continua of Care. The development of Indiana's "Balance of the State" application is the result of many diverse efforts throughout the state to address homelessness, and it currently involves twelve of the state’s thirteen Continua. Through this extremely competitive Continuum of Care program, local and state jurisdictions, housing authorities, and nonprofits (secular and faith based) can apply for funding in supportive housing for homeless persons as defined by HUD.

    The SuperNofa (Notice of Funding) Continuum of Care Homeless Assistance funding was announced in June 2008.  The Application (Exhibit 1) and the Projects (Exhibit 2) were submitted on October 22, 2008 for the state of  Indiana.  The application does not include the City of Indianapolis or the City of South Bend.  Those two cities applied to HUD independently.    

    Click here for a copy of Exhibit 1 that was sent to HUD.  Exhibit 1 is a summary of the projects and overall view of how the State of Indiana is addressing the homeless issue.
