Report of Local Government Finance (RLGF)

  • Basic Info

Georgia law requires local governments to submit an annual Report of Local Government Finances (RLGF) to the Department of Community Affairs (DCA). These reports provide important information, used by state and local government policy makers to better understand and evaluate local government operations and service delivery strategies.

DCA provides complete data sets for research purposes, and the data is used to publish the annual City and County Fiscal Planning Guides, which provide printable data tables containing average and per capita dollar amounts for various revenue, expenditure, and liability categories. For comparative purposes these tables group information for local governments of similar population sizes.     

The RLGF report form can be downloaded from DCA’s website and can be used for any fiscal year. Once completed, the spreadsheet should be emailed to DCA’s Office of Research at RLGF@dca.ga.gov.

Also, this spreadsheet includes an “attachments” tab to allow local government to submit required supplemental information in the same document.  When emailing these Reports, please enter "RLGF" followed by your government's name in the subject line of your email.
