Types of Whistleblower Cases

Government Grant Fraud

Universities, non-profit organizations, hospitals and start-up companies often depend on government-issued grants to conduct important research, perform much-needed public services, or develop new products. Applicants for federal grants are generally required to disclose how funds will be used, what the intended projects will do, and what the applicants’ qualifications are to complete the projects.

Types of Grant Fraud

Grant fraud that could result in liability under the False Claims Act includes:

  • Failure to disclose all funding sources
  • Falsifying application information
  • Making false statements when administering grant money
  • Overstating success of research to qualify for more funding
  • Misrepresenting program details like income, use of funds, how they are to be used, and other statements
  • Misrepresentation of an applicants’ qualifications for the grant

If you have information that grant fraud has been committed, you may be able to blow the whistle by filing a qui tam lawsuit under the False Claims Act. Successful qui tam whistleblowers can receive an award of between 15% and 30% of the amount recovered. However, these complex suits need to be undertaken by skilled and experienced qui tam law firms such as Tycko & Zavareei LLP.
