The Community Budget Alliance (CBA) consists of more than 40 organizations– including civic, environmental, faith, labor and other community organizations. These groups joined forces early in 2012 to seek an understandable, open and fair budget for the City of San Diego. CBA submitted a list of priorities and recommendations for the Mayor’s 2013 budget proposal. The alliance is concerned that city resources be allotted equitably to neglected neighborhoods, and that city residents have early, meaningful opportunities to participate in designing the budget.

The Community Budget Alliance is working to make the budget process more understandable, open and fair through offering workshops, educational materials and ongoing advocacy at city hall.
