It’s a new day at the County! We have built an operational plan that is more responsive to community voices than ever and builds upon a bold new Framework for the Future established by the Board of Supervisors.

As we introduce this new budget, you will see that the framework places equity at the forefront of all that we do and strengthens outcome-based programs and services to best meet the needs of our region. It also focuses on helping our residents and businesses come back strong after the devastating impacts of this pandemic.

Consistent with the framework, this budget sets a new foundation built upon racial equity, social and environmental justice, sustainability and economic opportunity. We are also examining all we do through a renewed focus on transparency and inclusion, one that brings community to the table and one that will strengthen our operations.

We remain focused on fiscal responsibility while prioritizing our resources based on data analysis and community need. While we continue to hold our core values of integrity, stewardship and service commitment at the forefront of our operations, we are also re-examining all our policies and programs to tear down structural racism and ensure equity is considered at every level of government programs and services.

The County of San Diego’s adopted budget is designed to help improve the lives of all San Diegans, especially the most vulnerable. This year’s budget will increase by 10.4% or nearly $0.7 billion over last year’s budget to more than $7 billion in Fiscal Year 2021–22.

Our top priority has always been and remains serving the residents of San Diego County by striving for excellence in everything we do.

The future is promising. Together we are strong, and together with the community and our Board, we will build upon the lessons learned in 2020 and strengthen our vision of a County that equitably builds better health, ensures safe living and thrives.
