Auditors’ Opinion

HCDA RECEIVED AN UNMODIFIED OPINION that its financial statements were presented fairly, in all material respects, in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.


THERE WERE NO REPORTED DEFICIENCIES in internal control over financial reporting that would have required reporting under Government Auditing Standards. The auditors identified two material weaknesses. A material weakness is a deficiency, or a combination of deficiencies, in internal control, such that there is a reasonable possibility that a material misstatement of the entity’s financial statements will not be prevented, or detected and corrected on a timely basis. The material weaknesses are described on pages 68-70 of the report related to the prior period adjustments noted above.
