Be A District 22 Participatory Budgeting Delegate

It’s time to move on the next stage of Participatory Budgeting for District 22. Capital project ideas for how to invest $1 million in our community were recently collected at in-person Neighborhood Assemblies and online. If you’d like to be involved in the next stage of the process, you can volunteer to become a budget delegate. You will work with other delegates break to transform the ideas from community residents into comprehensive ballot proposals.

Delegates will be given the chance to choose the committee on which they want to serve: Parks, Schools, Streets & Safety, or Community (NYCHA, Libraries, etc.)

If you did not attend a Neighborhood Assembly, don’t worry. You can still be a Budget Delegate.
