Part of the SDLF Essential Leadership Skills Certificate Program


Paula Hansen, CSDM
Rick Wood, CSDA

Developing a budget is one of the most important functions for a local government.  It is also one of the most difficult. Identifying priorities, forecasting revenue, addressing competing interests, determining the correct strategies, estimating cost of service, and ultimately allocating a limited pool of resources involves careful planning and effective decision making across an entire organization.  This webinar will address these budgetary concerns: 
What is the best way to budget for my local government?
Why is budgeting important beyond the finance office?
How can governments best allocate resources during challenging times?
Which budget practices improve equitable provision of services?
How can the budget process encourage decision making aligned with community priorities?
How do we overcome the most significant technical challenges in budgeting?
How can governments survive, adjust, and thrive during an economic crisis?
