Fraud Prevention

HRA is committed to maintaining the integrity of our programs and preventing fraud, waste and abuse.  Those who fraudulently receive benefits they do not qualify for are committing a serious crime and taking resources intended for those truly in need.  HRA will investigate reported fraud and, when it is discovered, work with law enforcement to prosecute those responsible to the full extent of the law.
