Therefore, the study of the features of financial security of financial flows of territorial communities becomes especially relevant in terms of the need to ensure their sustainable development. At the same time, one of the main criteria of financial security is that it should include a number of structural elements related to ensuring the tax content of local budgets, and should ensure the differentiation of sources of funds by expanding funding from private investors, which provides for private-public scheme. partnership.

The article considers the specifics of financial decentralization and features of UTC budget formation in modern conditions. The principles of public-private partnership as a potential source of investment in the development of local communities are considered. Accordingly, it is the provision of proper cooperation with investors that allows local communities to increase the amount of funds that can be raised for projects related to their socio-economic development.
