Balance the City of Los Angeles' Budget
Thank you for your interest in the 2013 Budget Challenge. The collection period for the survey ended on March 4, 2013. The survey will continue to be available for educational purposes only. Please use Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox.
Developed with input from the City's Neighborhood Council Budget Advocates, the Los Angeles Budget Challenge provided Angelenos with the opportunity to share their priorities for balancing the City's budget. For information about the City's budget, please visit the City Administrative Officer's website.
Where do these policy options come from?
The Budget Challenge is a budget balancing simulation. Budget amounts for each policy option are estimates based on preliminary budget targets developed by the Mayor in anticipation of a $216 million deficit for Fiscal Year (FY) 2013-14. For more information, please view the Mayor’s FY 2013-14 Budget Policy Letter, which directed City Departments to submit budget proposals that meet preliminary reduction targets.
