Together, we can create a better budget for Boston.
The City of Boston decides how 4 billion dollars will be spent every year. Our budget should reflect the voices and needs of all residents.
With you, we can transform Boston’s budget so that it’s equitable, transparent, and democratic.

Why Participatory Budgeting?

An opportunity for everyday people to directly decide on how to spend part of Boston’s budget.
A means of redistributing resources toward working-class, BIPOC communities in Boston.
It includes the voices of people who are excluded from electoral politics (such as undocumented, incarcerated, and younger residents).
A place for neighbors to deliberate about the needs in our communities and shape our collective future.
