The Annual Budgets for the City of Houston for Fiscal Year 2022, which begins July 1, 2021 and ends June 30, 2022 was presented to the City Council on Tuesday, June 2, 2021. The Proposed Budget for all funds excluding transfers totals $5.10 billion, an increase of $227.96 million over the Fiscal Year 2021.


The approved budget included an amendment (Number 11.01) from District F City Council Member Tiffany D Thomas. Council Member Thomas’ proposal ensured that City Council Members expend funds from the portions of their Council District Service Fund budgeted for each City Council District to qualifying nonprofits or agencies in their district towards programs and initiatives of public purpose through current funding mechanisms or through separately issued purchased orders provided each order does not exceed $50,000. The proposal gained Administration support and was included in the approved budget.


According to Council Member Tiffany D. Thomas, “The passage of the amendment allows for council members to increase partnerships with qualifying agencies that provide services for public benefit. For instance, we can finally financially support the super neighborhoods that desperately need seed funding to invigorate their work.” The amendment received full support with only one opposed by At-Large Position 1 Council Member Mike Knox.
