The City of Dallas Annual Budget Priorities Survey ends July 2nd. This survey helps the City Manager develop the budget priorities for the next fiscal year.


It is very important to get as many arts voters as possible to submit surveys that prioritize the arts and quality of life. Please do this as soon as possible and ask others in your organization, board, friends, and family to do the same.


A sample copy of the questions is available here.


  • For question number 1 either put “Quality of Life” or “Arts & Culture.”

  • For question number 2, be sure to check Arts & Culture as one of your three chosen priorities.

  • Question number 4 is tricky, and you must choose three things for decreased funding to complete the survey so think carefully about which you will choose.

  • For question 6, make sure to push Quality of Life to the top and then rank the others carefully to reflect the funding priorities you selected earlier.


The survey takes only a few minutes but means a lot to our goal of maintaining arts and culture funding. Click the button below to take the survey.
