Requests for an extension of the submission deadline: Best Practices in School Budgeting

Applicants should provide their Submittal to the GFOA no later than 120 days of the date when the budget was proposed/adopted unless an extension has been granted.

A government may request a 30-day extension of the submission deadline by e-mail, FAX (312-977-4806), or regular mail (GFOA, 203 North LaSalle Street, Suite 2700, Chicago, Illinois 60601-1210). The request for extension should briefly summarize the special circumstances that make the extension necessary, and state when the budget was legally adopted. When processed a confirmation will be sent by email.
