One of the core missions of the Recovery Board is to prevent fraud, waste, and mismanagement of Recovery funds. Recovery.gov gives you the ability to find Recovery projects in your own neighborhood and if you suspect fraudulent actions related to the project you can report those concerns in several ways:
- Submit a Complaint Form electronically
- Call the Recovery Board Fraud Hotline: 1-877-392-3375 (1-877-FWA-DESK)
- Fax the Recovery Board: 1-877-329-3922 (1-877-FAX-FWA2)
- Write the Recovery Board:
Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board
Attention: Hotline Operators
P.O. Box 27545
Washington, D.C. 20038-7958
You can also report fraud to an Inspector General.
The Recovery Board is committed to helping ensure these funds are spent properly, but we cannot do it without your help. Additionally, the Recovery Act provides protections for certain individuals (whistleblowers) who make specific disclosures about uses of Recovery Act funds.
All Recovery Act job sites are required to post signage of Whistleblower protections. It is strongly recommended the Recovery Act Fraud Hotline poster is posted along with the Whistleblower poster.
