The unprecedented level of federal funding made available through pandemic relief programs helped millions of individuals and businesses struggling financially. However, these programs and benefits are also plagued with high levels of fraud.
The risk of improper payments dramatically increased during the COVID-19 pandemic. Federal agencies estimated about $247 billion in improper payments in fiscal year 2022, a large increase compared to the estimate of about $140 billion for fiscal year 2017. The extent of fraud associated with COVID-19 relief programs is significant and could further increase, since many investigations are under way.
