Voting for Participatory Budgeting 2018 will be held April 7 to 15th in our Districts. This year everyone who lives in a district and is at least 11 years old or in the 6th grade, can vote. You can vote for your five favorite projects! To vote in person you can go to any of the sites listed below or you can vote online at pbnyc.org/vote starting April 7th at 12 am.

Participatory Budgeting is a program in which district residents participate directly in the city budgeting process by deciding how to spend a $1,000,000 or more per district in city funds. These funds can go towards capital projects in our parks, schools, or roads — or wherever else the residents of your district decide. Below are four of the projects up for vote directly affecting our neighborhood.
