Budget Committee

Every year, every Neighborhood Council in Los Angeles is entrusted with an operating budget drawn from appropriated City funds, as allocated by the City Council. The Budget Committee is charged with oversight of Funding Requests (Neighborhood Purpose Grants and Community Improvement Projects) and operating expense spending by the Board in concert with the Treasurer, with the Board approving the budget, all requests and the required monthly reports, to ensure transparency and proper use of these funds.
If you have a project or idea you believe would improve our quality of life, beautify the neighborhood, or help build the community, please complete the convenient FUNDING REQUEST FORM online and submit it to us. 
We are here to listen and to help you.


The Budget Committee does not have a regularly scheduled monthly meeting, but rather meets when a funding request form is submitted. Financial allocations or other budgetary actions are required.  For additional information or questions, you can contact the committee via e-mail: [email protected], and one of the committee members will respond.

Agenda Requests

The Budget Committee conducts its business by reviewing and prioritizing agenda requests for Board action (generally either in the form of a motion or letter) or announcements submitted by stakeholders, governmental entities and other interested individuals and organizations. Budget Committee Committee has the discretion to postpone a request, refer it to a specific committee for review and recommendation, treat it as an announcement or consider and resolve it as a non-Board administrative matter.
