2019 DCA Reporting Calendar is Now Available
The Department of Community Affairs (DCA) Office of Research has published their
2019 reporting calendar
. This calendar provides deadlines, contacts, and links for county, city, and authority reports. Based on the passage of HB 257 last year, authority registration and financial reporting have been combined into a single report on a single timeline due within six months of the conclusion of the authority’s fiscal year. This change will impact all local authorities. The
new authority reporting system
is live and authorities will use the same user ID and password combination that they have previously used. Transition information will be distributed by DCA to authorities in the near future to help them use the new system.
