Current PB Cycle

Cambridge began its tenth PB process in the fall of 2023. From September through October, community members submitted more than 1,100 ideas for how to spend $2 million of the City's FY25 budget to improve Cambridge. Throughout the winter, volunteer residents reviewed and developed those ideas into proposals to meet community needs. From now until March 17, 2024, it's your turn to vote!

The City will allocate a record-high $2 million for this year’s process, which doubles the previous budget of $1 million. The types of projects eligible for funding this fiscal year will be expanded to include capital and operating projects. Winning projects from past PB cycles have included youth center upgrades, electric vehicle charging stations, solar panels for the Main Library, laundry access in public schools, and many others.


PB10 Timeline


From October 2023 through January 2024, volunteer PB Delegates have been researching all submitted project ideas and developing the final proposals for the PB ballot. From March 7-17, 2024, all Cambridge residents ages 12 and older, regardless of citizenship status, will be eligible to vote for their favorite projects and decide how to spend $2 million of the City’s Budget.  

The PB vote has now begun! Visit the home page to view the ballot proposals.
