Dear New Yorker,

Participatory Budgeting Vote Week is almost here!

Participatory Budgeting in New York City (PBNYC) is a democratic, grassroots-driven process, in which community members – like YOU – directly decide how to spend at least $1 million in capital funds in participating Council Districts.

Between March 30th and April 7th, eligible residents across the five boroughs will cast their ballot and vote for the locally developed projects that they feel will best improve their community!

Click on the video below for a personal message from Speaker Johnson regarding this year's PB vote.


Voting is open to everyone ages 11 (or at least in 6th grade) and older* who lives in one of the 32 participating Council Districts – regardless of immigration status, gender, race, ethnicity, or eligibility to vote in traditional elections.

For the first time ever, the communities of the Lower East Side, Stuyvesant Town, West Harlem, Brownsville, and Bay Ridge have joined PBNYC, allowing an even greater number of New Yorkers to participate in this exciting process.  

Click here to see if your Council Member is participating, and, if they are, click their name to view projects on the ballot and voting locations.  If you are unable to vote in person, you can vote online here.  Make sure to tell your family, friends and neighbors to vote!

If you would like to receive the most up-to-date news regarding PBNYC on your mobile phone, text ‘PBNYC’ to (212) 676-8384 or sign up here!  You can also follow this process on social media using the hashtag #PBNYC.

Let the participation begin!
