This spring, Mayor Kenney will propose a budget to City Council for the coming fiscal year, which starts on July 1, 2022. Before the City drafts that proposal, we want to hear from Philadelphians about their priorities and preferences for how the City spends money on services like trash collection, anti-violence, public health, and more.

Join an upcoming virtual meeting to learn more about the City Budget and to share what you think the budget should include.

How to participate

Mayor Jim Kenney and members of his team participated on a panel to answer questions from Philadelphians about the upcoming City budget. Residents learned more about how the budget works and shared their ideas about how the budget could create a more inclusive and equitable COVID-19 recovery. You can watch recordings of these meetings on YouTube.
