Why CityGrows is Free

We believe that life in cities gets better for everyone when their government's processes are transparent and efficient, and we don't want the cost of tools to get in the way of that.

By making CityGrows free for public processes, we ensure that:

  1. All governments, regardless of size or budget, have access to the tools they need to succeed.
  2. The need to get a budget approved doesn't interfere with our users' ability to try something new for their organization. (We know that getting new expenses cleared can be a real hassle!)

How does CityGrows make money then?

  • We charge 2% fee on payments processed through CityGrows. (Note that this fee can be paid either by the constituent or by the government).
  • We offer paid premium features
