Multnomah County's Board of Commissioners adopts an annual budget to plan for the effective delivery of services to the community and to responsibly manage the public resources that support these services.
Multnomah County uses an incremental budgeting process.
The budget process consists of four distinct phases:
Phase I: The departments provide their submitted budgets (February 14, 2020)
Phase II: The Chair develops the Proposed Budget (May 7, 2020)
Phase III: (No Program Offer Documents in the table below) - The Board approves the Proposed Budget (May 7, 2020)
Phase IV: The Board adopts the final budget (June 23, 2020)
Below are the individual Program Offers as found in the FY 2021 budget. The table below contains five columns. Columns 1 and 2 provide the program offer names and numbers. The remaining three columns contain the program offer documents for each phase of the budget. The rightmost column contains the program offers in the adopted budget.
- Department Submitted - are the program offers submitted by the departments on February 14, 2020 for consideration in the Chair's Proposed Budget. These program offers are shown as submitted by the departments and have not yet been reviewed by the Budget Office for accuracy.
- Chair's Proposed - are program offers that have been included (funded) in the FY 2021 Chair's Proposed Budget, which will be presented to the Board of County Commissioners on May 7th. As the Chair’s Office reviews the program offers, they may be updated or changed.
- Adopted - are the program offers that are included (funded) in the County's Adopted Budget. This is the final stage of the budget process. The County's Budget will be adopted on June 23rd.

Please note: Most of the program offers in the Proposed budget were written in mid-February, without being informed by the COVID-19 pandemic. As we continue to determine the FY 2021 response for COVID-19, the program offers were updated to reflect those decisions. In addition, Submitted/Proposed program 10059’s number has changed to 10054E in the Adopted budget.
