The L.A. Civil + Human Rights and Equity Department has launched the voting phase of L.A. REPAIR first participatory budget pilot program.
Participatory budgeting is a democratic process in which community members decide how to spend part of a public budget. L.A. REPAIR will distribute roughly $8.5 million directly to nine underserved L.A. City neighborhoods, called REPAIR Zones.
If you live, work, or study in the REPAIR zone and are over the age of 15, you can vote on the projects that will shape our community. Whether you want to expand access to rental assistance, open up community gardens, or help address the educational disparities worsened by covid, L.A. REPAIR gives you the power to decide how public dollars are spent.
To vote in person, please visit Mid-Valley Regional Library between 1:00 and 4:00 PM.
