Cambridge Participatory Budgeting 2020

Volunteer as a Budget Delegate
Volunteering as a Budget Delegate is a great opportunity to be involved with the community, work as part of a team, get to know your neighbors, and help make your city a better place.
Budget Delegates will work from October through early December to research project ideas submitted by community members and determine which ones will make it to the ballot for the PB vote. This year’s Budget Delegate meetings will be conducted virtually. Delegates can participate through a computer or over the phone.
See more details and sign up here! Budget Delegate Orientation will take place on Tuesday, September 29, 2020 from 6-8pm.
Cambridge residents interested in serving as a Budget Delegate can apply online at or by contacting Daniel Liss in the Budget Office at or 617-349-4270. The deadline to apply is September 25, 2020.
