Your money, Your decision...
Could safety be improved in your community? Would you like to see better streets and parks? Participatory Budgeting lets YOU share your ideas on how you would spend $1 Million of public money to improve your community. There are several ways to participate in PB Chicago. If you live in a community doing PB, you can guide your local process on the Leadership Committee, serve as a Community Representative or volunteer your time or talents in other ways. You can also support PB Chicago by volunteering, spreading the word about PB or working to bring PB to your community.
Thank You Chicago!
Thanks to all the Chicagoans who participated in this years Participatory Budgeting cycle! With hundreds of people suggesting ideas for neighborhood improvements, dozens of residents turning those ideas into proposals and nearly 3,000 people coming out to decide how to spend $3 million in our communities, this was one of the most successful years yet! We can't wait to start our third cycle this Fall. Sign up here to receive updates as soon as they're available.
