COUNTY EXECUTIVE ALSOBROOKS PRESENTS $4.5 BILLION FY 2022 PROPOSED BUDGET
County Executive’s Proposed Budget Focuses on Reimagining Prince George’s County and the Path Forward
LARGO, MD – Prince George’s County Executive Angela Alsobrooks presented her proposed fiscal year 2022 budget, which provides key investments in a number of areas to reimagine Prince George’s County and ensure the County recovers from the pandemic stronger than ever before.
“Despite the challenges that the pandemic has presented for state and local government budgets nationwide, we are making critical and historic investments through our FY 2022 proposed budget,” said Alsobrooks. “As we move forward, we must continue to invest our resources with discipline in the face of uncertainty. I am confident this budget will help us reimagine Prince George’s County and further position us for a strong recovery once we put this pandemic behind us.”
The proposed FY 2022 budget includes $4.5 billion in operating funds, an increase of $56.7 million or 1.3% over the FY 2021 budget. The General Fund totals $3.78 billion, an increase of $63.6 million or 1.7% over the FY 2021 budget.
The proposed budget includes $3.78 billion in revenues, the largest portion of which comes from outside aid to support the Board of Education.
This year’s budget was constrained due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Although the County has not seen any declines in revenues, the County has also not seen typical growth. Due to these constraints, the overall growth in the budget only totaled 1.3%, to ensure the County would be better positioned to emerge from the pandemic. The County expects to see revenue grow again towards the end of FY 2022, with more normal growth in FY 2023.
Despite the constraints on the FY 2022 budget, the County Executive is still proposing critical and historic investments in a number of areas. Highlights of the County Executive’s proposed budget are below. The FY 2022 Proposed Budget in Brief will be made available on the County Office of Management and Budget’s website. In addition, to promote transparency the proposed budget will be posted in the County’s new online budget dashboard in the coming days.
