Participatory Budgeting 2019

How would YOU spend $1,000,000 in our community?

voting_box.pngParticipatory Budgeting (PB) is your chance as a northern Manhattan resident to make your voice heard on how to improve our community with public funds. For the fifth year in a row, Council Member Levine set aside $1 million to fund the most popular projects in our district. 

The participatory budgeting process begins with a series of public assemblies spread through out the district, so our office can hear directly from you what the community's needs are, and how to best address them. 

2019's Winning Projects Include:

Investing in our Schools
