Wall Street community at large (ie. General Assembly, Spokes Council).

The Housing WG is requesting a continuation of funds for $29 weekly unlimited NYC MTA metrocards. Funds were previously allocated for the purchase of 115 cards per week on a recurring basis, with the accepted amendment to return to this body to reevaluate that request. We feel with the current spending freeze, and an overall streamlining of the acquistion process through one central body there is a greater need. Therefore we are requesting an augmentation of 5 cards, for a total 120 cards per week which will require $3480 in funds. The previously established process for distribution and requirements for access will remain the same.
Total: $3,480 /week
