The Student Government Association met Monday to allocate funds in three separate motions for the Cape Verdean Student Alliance (CVSA), Commonwealth Honors College Area Government and the University of Massachusetts sailing team.

The senators unanimously allocated a total of $11,000 to the CVSA to help cover transportation costs for their yearly philanthropic visit to Cape Verde. The group makes the annual trip to bring supplies to schools in Cape Verde as part of a larger community service effort on the islands.

In another motion, the SGA approved to distribute another $11,000 to the Commonwealth Honors College Area Government for a dance and area parade that is tentatively scheduled for April 5.

The proposal passed after an hour of debate and procedural confusion that led to the approval of the originally proposed total of $11,000. That money will cover the costs to put on the event, which will include a rock climbing wall, dunk tanks, inflatable attractions and free T-shirts.

In a third and final motion, the Senate approved the appropriation of $2,100 to the UMass sailing team to pay their coaches’ salaries and cover the costs to repair their boats.

SGA Secretary of Veteran Affairs Brendan Davenport announced the successful opening of the new Student Veteran Resource Center in Dickinson Hall. Massachusetts Secretary of Education Matthew Malone and Secretary of Veteran Affairs Coleman Nee recently visited the site to emphasize the need for UMass Amherst, the state’s flagship campus, to be the top veteran-friendly school in the Commonwealth.
