Participatory Budgeting projects can be a wide range of projects. From school repairs, to storytelling gardens, to self-defense classes. District 39 runs PB for both capital projects (brick and mortar type projects) and expense projects (programming with local organizations).

All of the ideas are collected (both from online and in person assemblies and any other submissions) and then given to our delegate committees for deliberation. In these deliberations, we develop the ideas. So your ideas can be both broad or very specific, and everywhere in between (although specificity is certainly helpful).

You can also see previously funded projects here to help kickstart some more ideas.

UPDATE:

Idea submission is now closed.  The ideas (and their ratings) are being sorted and handed over to our volunteer delegates.

There’s still time to get involved in the process though, if you want to help with the next stage, please sign up to volunteer!
