Queens Borough President Budget Information
The budget is the centerpiece of policy-making in New York City. Through the budget, the City allocates resources and sets the policy agenda for the upcoming fiscal year. As mandated by the Charter, the Borough President is empowered to make recommendations to the Mayor’s Budget, as well as provide discretionary funding to organizations and City agencies.
The Borough President has two sources of discretionary funding. Discretionary Expense funding is available to organizations in the form of grants to supplement program costs. Discretionary Capital funding is available to organizations to supplement the costs of large scale projects and fixed assets. These funds are essential, and I look forward to working with you to improve the vitality of Queens.
