We’re officially launching the Community Budget Request (CBR) process for FY 2024-2025! Community Budget Requests are an exciting opportunity for your community council to seek City funding for a variety of eligible neighborhood projects. Community councils may submit up to three projects as part of the Community Budget Request process. In response to feedback from Community Councils, the portal will be open a month earlier, to allow more time for communities to develop budget requests. However, this may require Community Councils to meet and discuss their CBRs in August and September, 2022.
