Annual Budget

The ECHFA is able to assist future first-time homebuyers by planning and budgeting. Budgeting is one of the most important activities undertaken by governments. The budget is a plan of financial operation embodying an estimate of proposed expenditures for a given period and the proposed means of financing them, and is the primary tool in allocating ECHFA’s financial resources to programs and services. Specifically, ECHFA’s budget serves as a policy making tool, a management tool, a financial tool, and a communication tool. The end result should be a balanced budget that has been well planned and communicated. Accordingly, the attached Annual Budgets* of the Escambia County Finance Authority as adopted and amended are attached.

Serious concerns relating to fraud, failures in financial reporting, or unethical or illegal conduct, may be reported in either of the following ways:
