Each year, the Fair Budget Coalition compiles a budget recommendation report developed through a broad community input process led by our membership of experts: social and legal service providers, advocates and
community members. Our members are front-line professionals who address the needs of our most vulnerable populations on a daily basis.

These recommendations are in no way intended to reflect the entirety of needs; instead, they reflect core issue areas in which our members have particular expertise. These recommendations represent Fair Budget’s alternate vision of resource allocation that equalizes human development with economic development. They are reflective of the times in which we live, but also portend a more positive future. Our city cannot truly thrive until all of its residents have good health, stability and genuine opportunities to contribute.
