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 that New Yorkers have put up for public vote from 2012 - 2017 using the explore tab, and learn more about PBNYC on their website.
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.
We’re piloting in NYC now, and will expand to include demographic data and other cities over 2018. Learn about this project here.
New York City Council has used PB to have residents allocate money since 2012, spending $1 million of capital funding towards projects annually in each of about 60% of City Council Districts.
