This is Participatory Budgeting Vote Week in NYC

This is the week to vote for Participatory Budgeting projects in your district.

Participatory Budgeting is a process which allows residents to directly decide how to spend part of the public budget -- money that comes from their taxes.

This year, twenty-four NYC councilmembers are letting residents allocate part of their capital discretionary funds, giving the community the chance to decide how to spend over more than $25 million.

The seven Brooklyn Councilmembers participating this year include David Greenfield (District 44); Brad Lander (District 39); Steve Levin (District 33), Carlos Menchaca (District 38), Antonio Reynoso (District 34), Mark Treyger (District 47) and Jumaane Williams (District 45).

Look up your Councilmember and projects to vote on here.
