For the 9th time since PB launched in Cambridge in 2014, Cambridge residents will be able to choose how to spend part of the City’s Capital budget. This cycle, the City has committed $1,000,000 to PB projects. Projects that won in past years include youth center upgrades, home essentials for newly housed residents, solar panels for the Main Library, laundry access in public schools, and many more!

Cambridge residents who would like to volunteer and have a more hands on approach in the PB process can volunteer as PB delegates HERE.
PB Delegates are essential to Participatory Budgeting. PB Delegates are volunteers who work in the fall to research, evaluate, and prioritize the project ideas submitted by community members from August - November. These volunteers will ultimately develop the final project proposals for the annual PB vote in December. They do this through research, community assessments, and site visits, as well as through consultations with City staff regarding project feasibility and cost. This years' PB Delegate Orientation will be on August 4, 2022, from 6pm-8pm. Join us!
