    Budget Resiliency: How Public Agencies Can Innovate to Address the Revenue Gap


    Held on October 8, 2020

    The COVID-19 public health crisis has created ripple effects in our economy, forcing state and local governments to reevaluate and shift their operational priorities. Cities, counties and states rely heavily on taxes and fees, which are dependent on regular economic activities—from sales and real estate excise taxes to parking and street-use fees. With a significant slowdown in economic activity, projected budgets have taken a hit, with many public agencies facing massive budget shortfalls.

    During this session, we will hear from public and private sector experts with invaluable experience from the last recession. Together, we will explore how cities and transportation agencies can identify potential revenue-generating initiatives that offset costs—and help close the revenue gap.


    Speakers Include:

    Martin O'Malley, Former Governor of Maryland and Former Mayor of Baltimore

    Dan Tangerlini, Former Chief Financial Officer for the U.S. Department of the Treasury 

    Neveen Awad, Managing Director & Partner, Boston Consulting Group

    Gabe Klein, Partner, Cityfi
