Project Description

In Mexico City, participatory budgeting—in which communities democratically decide how to spend available municipal public funds—presents a tremendous opportunity for residents to build strong local organizations and enhance their ability to advocate for the development priorities of their communities. IAF grantee partner Ollin, Jóvenes en Movimiento, A.C. (Ollin) engages grassroots leaders to offer training on participatory budgeting, implements a subgrant fund in Mexico State as a pilot of participatory budgeting, promotes the replication of this model beyond Mexico City, and disseminates information on Mexico City’s participatory budgeting program to citizens. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to unlock private, public, and community resources for grassroots development.
