Finance and Budget

The Pikes Peak Area Council of Governments’ annual budget is primarily funded through dues paid by its 16 member governments, and state and federal grants.

The budget is developed on the following timeline:

  • May Board meeting: PPACG staff provides the Board and member governments with any forecasted significant changes in the next year’s budget, so that the member governments can include these changes in their budget processes.
  • October Board meeting: the draft budget for the coming year is discussed, and the Board directs the staff to make any change they wish to have included.
  • November Board meeting: the amended budget is distributed to the Board along with the coming year’s Work Program. The budget can be approved at this time.
  • The budget is officially adopted no later than December 31 by a resolution signed by the Board Chair, Treasurer, and PPACG Executive Director.
