The Citizens Budget Commission Prize for Public Service Innovation was established in 1997 to recognize and promote successful innovations in the delivery of public services. The CBC awards this prize to celebrate creative thinking, encourage continual improvement in the delivery, efficiency, and quality of public services, and to share government achievements with the public and other agencies.
The Trustees of the CBC instituted a prize schedule that alternates annually between New York City and New York State agencies; this year, the prize will be awarded to an outstanding State agency or public authority.
