How to Look Up Payments:

  • All institutions receiving state aid should look up their payments in the Statewide Financial System (SFS). Each institution is required to maintain an SFS account. For larger institutions you may need to contact your finance office.
  • Each individual aid program paid will be identified by the invoice number. (Please note: many times multiple aid programs are bundled in one payment but there will be a separate listing for each program.)

Reading the Invoice Number:

  • First 2 characters: SA= State Aid, FA= Federal Aid
  • Characters 3-12 are the project number (project numbers are listed in your Certification Form)

Invoice # SA0300240001

  • SA= State Aid
  • 0300= Public Library System Basic Aid
  • 24= 2023-2024 State Fiscal Year
  • 0001= recipient’s project code
