About Participatory Budgeting


Participatory Budgeting is a different way to manage public money by engaging people to directly decide how to spend public funds. Palo Alto College has set aside $25,000 for project that will be brainstormed, proposed and voted on in Spring 2016 and implemented by Spring 2017 by faculty and staff. This is your opportunity to have your ideas turned into action.
