FY21 Budget Information: 

The Berke Administration has begun to establish the City of Chattanooga's financial plan for the Fiscal Year 2021 utilizing the Budgeting for Outcomes (BFO) approach to allocate funds.  This process realigns dollars more closely with strategic, community priorities and reinforces a culture of performance and results.

We are excited to invite our community agencies to be a part of the BFO process. Any agency requesting funding support for the Fiscal Year 2021 (July 1, 2020 - June 30, 2021) must submit their request and all required documents by January 3, 2020. Pre-submissions are due by November 18, 2019.

Support is available at bfo.chattanooga.gov to provide instructions for all submissions along with other information. There will be a more in-depth training on the BFO Process, the BFO App to submit offers and required forms. New organizations requesting funds for the first time, must email bfo@chattanooga.gov. Questions concerning the BFO process may email BFO@chattanooga.gov
