The proposed FY19 budget includes a small deficit that will allow the Board to continue supporting VAFRE’s mission and to bring increased value to VAFRE members.  The Board anticipates this FY19 budget deficit will be covered by a similar FY18 surplus at the end of this fiscal year, consistent with our recent history of finishing the year slightly better than budget.
