The Citywide registration for focus groups surrounding the City Budget is closed.

Thank you to everyone who registered!

Select applicants will be contacted about upcoming sessions which will focus on Philadelphians priorities and preferences on how the City Spends money on services like trash collection, anti-violence, public health, and more. For Philadelphians who were not selected or able to attend our Virtual Focus Groups, we still want to hear your ideas before the proposed budget is put together.

How you can still participate
