FundPHX digital ad​ 

Fun​d​PHX is an online tool that was launched in January 2020 designed to educate and engage the public in the City's annual budget process. The tool will be available in November 2022​​ with the 2022-23 adopted budget in both English and Spanish and gives residents an opportunity to try their hand at balancing the City's General Fund operating budget. It ​​also allows residents to provide feedback on current funding levels and share community priorities with staff. Information collected in the tool from residents will be shared regularly with City Council so it can help guide development of the 2023-24 operating budget.
