PeopleBudget

Overview:  Elected officials at the state and local level often take limited resident feedback when making budgetary decisions. In Miami, we saw increased public feedback with elected officials not listening to all the feedback. This is what inspired PeopleBudget an open-source effort to bring public budgeting and drive civic inclusion through new models of engaging the general public in things related to the budget for community organizations and government.
