Follow the Money!

Ever wonder where your tax dollars go? The following link will direct you to the website where you can view how much money is being allocated to community and/or non-profit organizations in your city council member’s district. You can even examine how funds were dispersed in districts across New York City.

The fancy term used to describe these financial awards is “discretionary funds”.

Discretionary funds are defined as denoting or relating to investment funds placed with a broker or manager who has discretion to invest them on the client’s behalf. 

Have a look. The results may surprise you. 

Be on the look out for a follow-up story soon…. There’s more to it!
