Abstract The subject of the study is the processes of forming the budget security of municipalities. The purpose of the study was to identify problems that reduce the effectiveness of leveling the level of budget provision of municipalities. It is shown that it is impossible to equalize the budget provision of municipalities by establishing standards for the formation of expenditures of local budgets or improving interbudgetary relations within the framework of «model» budgets. Using the example of the Khabarovsk Territory, the preference for an evolutionary approach to improving the methodology for equalizing the degree of budget security in modern conditions is shown, with an emphasis on taking into account differences in housing and communal services costs and transport accessibility of municipalities.
