A budget is a reflection of a community's values and priorities. As a community member, you play an important role in this process. Chair Jessica Vega Pederson presented her proposal for the county's Fiscal Year 2025 budget to the Multnomah County Board Commissioners on April 25, 2024. This began a process of review by the Board that culminates in the passage of a balanced budget in June. 

Centering and embedding equity in the annual budget process continues to be a priority of the Chair and community consultation and engagement is key to the achievement of this aim. Our office collected over 1000 individual submissions to our community budget survey in February and March and used this input to inform our budget priorities. 

A dedicated email for community members and other stakeholders to submit budget comments or questions year-round is available at: ChairBudget@multco.us.

More information and additional opportunities for the community to participate in the FY 2026 annual budget process will be posted on this website, so check back regularly.
