Your Voice, Your Choice Participatory Budgeting Program suspended for 2020

In response to COVID-19, Seattle Department of Neighborhoods, along with all City departments, has been shifting our resources, staff, and efforts toward supporting the needs of our community, including our most vulnerable residents. With the challenges of uncertain economic conditions this year and next, the Your Voice, Your Choice Participatory Budgeting Program is suspended for 2020.

We want to thank everyone who participated in our idea collection process earlier this year. Our staff will hold on to those ideas that were collected.

The Your Voice, Your Choice projects that were awarded in 2019 and were due for construction in 2020 will be delayed and may not be constructed until 2021 at the earliest due to reduced city crew capacity related to COVID-19.
