We, the Participatory Budgeting Grand Rapids (PBGR) Committee, are now accepting submissions in one of four ways:

  • Complete the PBGR Idea Submission Survey Online
  • Text Message: Text “pb” to 73224

  • Print and Return: Print and complete the PBGR Idea Submission Form and return in-person or via U.S. Mail to the City’s Customer Service Center located at 300 Monroe Avenue NW Grand Rapids, MI 49503. Multiple ideas may be submitted with this printed form, but each should be submitted on a separate form.
