Highlights & Accomplishments

‘Participatory Budgeting (PB) goes to Washington’ (2014)

In 2014, Marti was invited to the White House along with the City of Vallejo and several other national and international Participatory Budgeting practitioners to discuss ways to disseminate PB nationwide and improve the research and evaluation of its success. As part of that effort, the United States Housing & Urban Development Department (HUD) embraced PB as a method for distributing Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds and included a PB resource page for more information at its website.
