PAFR Program - Request an Extension

Request an extension to the PAFR Program:

  1. Go to If you are not already logged in to the AMS, you will need to enter the government’s username and password to login. The username will be the government’s GFOA member number followed by a dash and another single digit, usually the number 2. If you do not remember the password, click “forgot password” and then “send recovery email” and you will get a password reset link.
  2. Select “Start Process” in the blue band at the top of the screen.
  3. Click on the green “Start” button to the right of “Extension Request”. Choose Popular Annual Financial Reporting from the drop down menu under Award Program and complete the remainder of the form.
  4. Ignore the field that asks for the Budget Adoption Date. (When applying for an extension to the PAFR Program, this field can be left blank.)
  5. Click “Submit”.

PAFR program staff will review the request and an email with the decision will be sent to the email address entered on the extension form.
