Explore Our Budget

Montgomery County's digital Capital Budget and Capital Improvement Program provides our community with an easy to use, interactive and engaging version of our annual publication. Use this site to learn more about the County's capital improvement projects.



Montgomery County prepares a five year Capital Improvement Program (CIP) in conjunction with the annual budget process. The CIP incorporates the goals of “The Comprehensive Plan for Montgomery County” (Montco 2040: A Shared Vision) and identifies projected expenditures and revenue sources for each project.

The capital planning process commences in June when departments are required to update current capital projects and identify new capital project needs. Departmental capital requests are collaboratively evaluated by Senior Management, the County's Budget Team and reviewed with staff from Assets and Infrastructure, Commerce, Information Technology Solutions, Judicial, Planning Commission, Public Safety and other County departments.

Funding requests are evaluated and prioritized using criteria that includes the relationship to the Montco 2040: A Shared Vision Comprehensive Plan (see below), completion of projects included in the prior year's CIP and already underway, and mandated improvements to County infrastructure.

After prioritization, projects are balanced against available funds and presented to the Board of Commissioners (BOC) for consideration. In accordance with State law and the County code, the BOC holds a public hearing and adopts a capital budget for the upcoming fiscal year (2023) and a capital plan for the five year period (2023 – 2027) by December 31, 2022.
