Heartland honored for financial reporting

May 2, 2019

Heartland Community College has been recognized for excellence in financial reporting.

The Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting has been awarded to Heartland Community College District 540 by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) for this year’s comprehensive annual financial report (CAFR).

The Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting. The attainment of the Certificate represents a significant accomplishment by a government and its management.

An Award of Financial Reporting Achievement has been awarded to the individuals or department designated by the government as primarily responsible for preparing the award-winning CAFR.

The CAFR has been judged by an impartial panel to meet the high standards of the program, which includes demonstrating a constructive “spirit of full disclosure” to clearly communicate its financial story and motivate potential users and user groups to read the CAFR.
