This project is part of the Participatory Budgeting Project's Participation Lab.
We're piloting within NYC right now using the projects funded by PBNYC - NYC's PB process. Explore projects in NYC using the explore tab, and learn more about PBNYC on their website.
Participatory Budgeting (PB) is a democratic process in which community members directly decide how to spend part of a public budget in their neighborhood. In the US and Canada 414,000 people have worked together to decide how to spend over $299 Million dollars during the last decade - and we’re just getting started. To advocate to your elected officials to PB, get their contact info here.
