FY2023 Budget

The City of Fort Worth is currently planning the FY 2023 Budget, with an emphasis on Public Safety, Affordability, and Growth. As we focus on our vision for the next fiscal year, we also want to engage our residents and understand what is important to them.

A series of community meetings will be held in the coming weeks where residents can provide input and feedback on any city issues they feel need to be addressed. In addition to the impressive feedback the City has already gathered through the “STEER the Budget Campaign,” more feedback is welcome as the budget process progresses. Thank you for your willingness to participate in the City of Fort Worth’s FY2023 budget development process and we look forward to hearing from you at the following community engagement meetings:
