City of Grand Junction Begins Budget Process for 2023

The City of Grand Junction has begun the 2023 budget process and there are several opportunities for community members to be engaged in the process. An important part of the process is hearing from the community regarding priorities, programs, and services they feel are important. The 2020 Comprehensive Plan had significant public input, which is utilized in developing the City’s annual budget for delivery of programs and services. The City’s annual budget is adopted by City Council for a one-year period beginning January 1 through December 31 of each year.

City Council provides direction for the budget through the City’s Strategic Priorities which are 1) Mobility & Infrastructure, 2) Economic Development, 3) Housing, 4) Public Safety, and 5) Quality of Life. With the strategic priorities as the blueprint, city staff prepares the annual budget while gathering input from the community. Upcoming meetings are open to the public: a virtual meeting on Wednesday, August 10 at noon and an in-person meeting Thursday, August 11 at 5 p.m. at City Hall in the auditorium at 250 N. 5th Street. Additionally, suggestions and ideas can be shared on GJSpeaks.org/Budget. The first public hearing on the 2023 budget will take place in November with a second hearing in December.

As part of the budget process, City Council shows their commitment to community non-profit organizations with support for a non-profit funding request process that is now open for applications. This year, City Council has expanded the process by creating a tiered approach to the applications. The 2023 non-profit funding request process has been revised to include requests in two tiers based on the amount being requested. Tier 1 includes requests for $50,000 or less and Tier 2 includes requests greater than $50,000. 

All non-profit funding requests will be evaluated based on alignment with strategic priorities. Funding decisions will be made by City Council and prioritized according to available resources. The deadline for submitting applications for Non-Profit Funding is August 17, 2022, and applications and more information are available online.
