In recent years, the civic budget, also called participatory budget, has become a widespread form of encouraging inhabitants to actively participate in actions undertaken by local authorities. It has been successful primarily in large cities in Poland. However, this initiative, although on a minor scale, has also been implemented in rural areas. The research objectives of this study include\: identification of rural and urban\-rural communes employing civic budgeting in rural areas of Poland in 2017. Moreover, the author has identified rural municipalities taking advantage of the civic budget as a tool of social participation. Characteristics of submitted projects, including financial and structural terms have also been presented. This study is an attempt of filling the gap in the scientific literature, as the civic budget in the Polish cities is relatively well recognized, the initiative in rural areas has not yet become the subject of the research. At the same time, it should be noted that study on civic budget in rural areas is in need of further in\-depth analysis."]
