Popular Annual Financial Report (PAFR)

The Popular Annual Financial Report, or PAFR, contains information extracted from Linn County’s Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) and is designed to be readily accessible and easily understandable to the general public and other interested parties without a background in public finance.

In addition to providing easy to understand financial information, the report also highlights accomplishments and major initiatives of the past year and demonstrates the vital role of county government.

Linn County’s PAFR has earned the Award for Outstanding Achievement in Popular Annual Financial Reporting from the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) for 22 consecutive years and won second place for its FY18 annual report in the 100,000 and up population category from the City-County Communications and Marketing Association (3CMA).
