Help Support Participatory Budgeting in Cambridge

Thank you to those who answered our Budget Delegate call!

Budget Delegates are essential to Participatory Budgeting. Budget Delegates will review all of the ideas submitted by the community in June and July and will work during the fall to research, assess, and prioritize those ideas and determine which ones will be developed into full proposals for the PB vote in December. Volunteering as a Budget Delegate is a great opportunity to become a community leader, develop teambuilding skills, get to know your neighbors, build your resume, and help make your city a better place.

We have reached Budget Delegate capacity for the 2017 PB cycle.  THANK YOU to the 60+ community members who signed up!  We will recruit a new group of Budget Delegates for the 2018 PB cycle next summer.
