Jennifer Budoff

Budget Director, Council of the District of Columbia

Jennifer Budoff is the Budget Director for the Council of the District of Columbia, a position she has held since January 2011. In this role, she leads the Council’s oversight of the District’s annual budget process, which includes managing the Council’s review, analysis, markup, and enactment of the $18 billion operating budget and $2 billion capital improvement plan.  Jennifer is responsible for funding vital Council priorities that invest in and support District residents, such as affordable housing, school improvement, and tax reform. In the most recent budget cycle, she helped the Council design, budget, and legislate an EITC-based basic income, the first of its kind in the country. As part of her commitment to demystifying the budget for the public, Jennifer spearheaded the development of a public-facing Office website that includes several dashboards for exploring the budget, as well as a visual budget look-up tool that allows users to break down agency budgets to a granular level.
