The subject of the study is the models of population involvement in the budget process, practiced in the People's Republic of China. The purpose of this study is to identify the features of the models and to consider the prospects for implementing this experience in Russian practice. The method used in the research is the theoretical base analysis. Data sources are scientific articles from the RSCI database, Google Scholar, the national knowledge base of China (CNKI), official legal acts of the People's Republic of China and the Russian Federation. The analysis of the scientific literature conducted earlier in the field of initiative budgeting has shown that the theoretical basis of this mechanism is still being developed, discussed and focused primarily on domestic practice. Foreign experience is usually reflected in fragments and without further consideration of the prospects for innovations in Russia. In this regard, the authors consider the models of population involvement in the budget process, practiced in Wuxi, Chengdu, Yanjing, Meilan. Considerable attention is also paid to the related practice deliberative democracy emerged in Wenling. The main result is that the considered models have different ways of involving the population in the budget process, but rural and city committees have significant role in most of them. Analogues of ones are Territorial Public Self-Government (TPSG) and gatherings of citizens in Russia. Using TPSG, following the example of the PRC, can lead to ignoring the interests of some residents of municipalities. In our opinion, it is perspective to use the experience of Yanjin and Wenling to change the practices of participatory budgeting, Meilan to implement certain innovations in the program of support for local initiatives.
