Case Study

Customer Challenge/Problem

Meeting and maintaining compliance with federal regulatory requirements which puts continued funding at risk. For example, a customer was awarded a grant from the federal government to serve 1800 children with an average cost per child of $8,500. The grantee was under-enrolled by 100 children for 8 consecutive months. This enrollment shortfall equated to a noncompliance and which could have led to a deficiency. Approximately $858,000 of tax payers’ dollars was not reaching the children and families in poverty it was allocated to serve due to lack of compliance.


HGJA worked with key stakeholders including leadership, management, and Board to address systematic problems causing under-enrollment. Through our initial assessment, HGJA identified root causes impacting under-enrollment and worked with the customer to develop a strategic and tactical plan to remove barriers and to meet full enrollment within the proposed timelines. Our solution not only helped the organization to meet regulatory requirements, but helped to ensure tax payer dollars continued to reach children and families in poverty.
