Participatory Budgeting: Visualizing the Results (Cycle 5)

During PBNYC cycle 5 (2015-2016), New Yorkers had the opportunity to vote for their five favorite projects proposed in their Districts. Each participating Council Member offered at least $1 million in funding for the proposals that tally the most votes. 67,000 New Yorkers voted to allocate $38 million for locally-developed capital projects across 28 Council Districts in New York City.
