New York – The Mayor's Office of Immigrant Affairs (MOIA) and the Civic Engagement Commission (CEC) hosted an in-person Community and Ethnic Media Roundtable to discuss the upcoming series of "The People's Money" boroughwide idea generation sessions. The five borough-based idea generation sessions hosted by the CEC and local partners will invite residents to represent their neighborhood in the participatory budgeting process.
"The People's Money" is New York City's first-ever citywide participatory budgeting process, where New Yorkers decide what projects should get funded. All New Yorkers as young as 11 years old and regardless of immigration status will be able to decide how to spend $5 million funding from the Mayor's Office to address local community needs citywide.
