About Us:

The Budget Advocates are an elected, all volunteer, independent advisory body charged with making constructive recommendations on the City's budget to the Mayor and 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.

Our Mission:

  • 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's budget process
