Hartford Decide$ is a democratic process, known as Participatory Budgeting, in which Hartford residents decide how to spend City money for public construction projects, such as improvements to parks, streets, sidewalks, or public land or buildings. Residents brainstorm ideas, develop projects, and vote on the projects which are then implemented by the City of Hartford.


In the past two years, Hartford residents have chosen eight projects, totaling $1 million, which are now being implemented. The Hartford City Council has now set aside an additional $250,000 that Hartford residents 13 years of age and up will decide how to spend.


Attend one of the three Information Sessions listed above to learn more about the process and how you can participate as a volunteer. Many options are available to fit your interests and time.
