About Past Budgets

The budgets available here reflect the budget adopted by Harris County Commissioners Court prior to the start of each fiscal year (March 1st). The Budget Management Department works with County departments and precincts to prepare the budget for Commissioners Court to consider for adoption. By statute, the total budget may not exceed the revenue estimate provided by Harris County Auditor’s Office.

Once adopted, new sources of revenue may be certified or budget transfers between departments may occur. For information about the County’s revenues/expenditures at the end of a given fiscal year, please see the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) for that year.
