Support Participatory Budgeting in Cambridge!

Calling all Budget Delegates!

Budget Delegates are essential to Participatory Budgeting. 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.

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.

Serving as a Budget Delegate requires a significant time commitment from mid-August through October, with one final meeting in mid-November. Please review the schedule below to decide whether this role is right for you.

Budget Office staff will work closely with Budget Delegates to support their work.
