Since at least 2008, the Roosevelt Island Residents Association (RIRA) has been tasked by the Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RIOC) to evaluate applications and make recommendations to RIOC for the allocation of approximately $100 Thousand annually in Public Purpose Funds to Roosevelt Island non-profit organizations....
and:
... Question have been raised recently whether RIRA will continue with its role of making Roosevelt Island Public Purpose Funds recommendations to RIOC....
At that time, RIOC President Charlene Indelicato replied to my question about the future role of RIRA in the Public Purpose Funds process noting:
We have not finalized the method of distribution as yet but be assured it will be in accordance with all applicable laws, rules and regulations.
We may learn more about the future process for distribution of Roosevelt Island Public Purpose Fund later this week.
