FY 2020-2021 Annual Budget

About the Budget Process

The City of Santa Ana has an annual fiscal budget, which begins in July and ends in June of the following year. Our approach is to combine the strategic plan and annual financial plan for operations and capital improvements.

This process enables us to direct our resources towards programs and activities with the greatest potential to successfully achieve our Vision and Purpose.

Available below, we provide key documents to help you understand the City's budget process and results. Additionally, you can view budget information as well as a check payment register utilizing our OpenBook financial data tool. If you require additional budget information or would like to learn more about the City's budget, contact the Budget Office at (714) 647-5420.
