The City of Sacramento has adopted local campaign finance regulations. These regulations provide for public campaign financing (also referred to as matching funds), restrict spending and place limits on contributions.

Due to budget constraints, the Campaign Reform Fund was not funded for 2022. Therefore public financing is not available. However, provisions pertaining to contribution limits remain in effect. For detailed information please visit the Campaign Finance page.
