Sign up to be a Budget Delegate or Facilitator!

Delegates and Facilitators make the real work of democracy possible. Delegates meet regularly in the fall and early winter to narrow down the list of project ideas, research the community’s needs, and work with city agencies and staff to develop concrete proposals for the ballot. Facilitators guide the Delegates in this process, helping them focus on equity and meet key deadlines. Join a committee that most interests you — like Parks, Transportation, Public Safety, Education, Youth, Public Housing, and Arts & Culture! Delegates must be at least 11 years old or at least in 6th Grade and have a meaningful connection to the district, for example live in the district, work in the district, own a business in the district, attend school in the district, or be a parent of a child attending school in the district. Sign up here or contact your district with questions.

Our volunteer coordinator or a district staff member will follow up with you. To find out more about how you can get involved, check out the Participate page.
