The Limited Public Financing Act (LPF) provides District City Council candidates with some public funds by way of reimbursement for campaign expenses. The goal of the program is to ensure that all Oakland residents have a fair and equal opportunity to participate in the elective and governmental process. The amount of money available depends on the total funds allocated to the program in the City budget as well the number of candidates running in City Council district races each election.
