PBNYC: The People's Budget
Join this participatory budgeting cycle in your City Council District!
What is Participatory Budgeting?
Participatory Budgeting (PB) is a democratic process where community members decide how to spend part of a public budget. PB gives communities real power over real money.
PB started in Porto Alegre, Brazil as an anti-poverty measure, and has since spread to over 7,000 cities around the world. PB has been used to spend state, county, and city budgets, as well as those of schools, housing authorities, and other public institutions.
