The Neighborhood Council Budget Advocates’ mission is to:

Engage with Neighborhood Councils and stakeholders on the City’s financial condition

Encourage the City to allocate its resources to improve services and quality of life for all Angelenos

Advocate for Los Angeles’ true potential as one of the world’s leading cities

Bring transparency to the City budget process

The Budget Advocates are an elected,  all volunteer,  independent advisory board charged with making constructive
recommendations on the City’s budget to the Mayor and the City Council and inspiring City Departments to improve
their operations.  Budget Advocates also solicit stakeholder input on City services,  inform Angelenos on the City’s
fiscal management,  and report on the City’s progress.
