Town of New Canaan Receives the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award from GFOA

The Town of New Canaan has been awarded the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) for its FY2024 Budget documents.

To earn this honor, our budget met nationally recognized guidelines, serving as a:

  • Policy document
  • Financial plan
  • Operations guide
  • Communication device

This award highlights New Canaan’s efforts to improve budgeting quality, setting a great example for others across North America. First Selectman Dionna L. Carlson praised the achievement, crediting the Board of Selectmen, Board of Education, Town Council, Audit Committee, and our dedicated Finance Department, especially CFO Anne Kelly-Lenz and Budget Manager Josh Kaufman.

Thank you to everyone involved!
