Village Alliance

NYC Participatory Budgeting - Cycle 8

This year 32 Council Members across the city are asking residents to decide how to spend at least $35 million in capital funding.

Community members can vote on capital projects like improvements to schools, parks, libraries, public housing, and other public or community spaces.

Each participating Council Member guarantees funding for the projects that receive the most votes, until their PB funding runs out.
