What is Participatory Budgeting (PB)?
Greensboro Participatory Budgeting is a democratic process in which community members from all five City Council districts are directly deciding how to spend $500,000; $100,000 per district. The process works like this:
* The Participatory Budgeting Project is a nonprofit organization that empowers people to decide together how to spend public money, primarily in the US and Canada. PBP creates and supports participatory budgeting processes that deepen democracy, build stronger communities, and make public budgets more equitable and effective. The City of Greensboro has contracted with PBP for administration and outreach services to support Greensboro Participatory Budgeting.
