    11    2. The anti-discrimination in housing fund  shall  consist  of  moneys
    12  appropriated thereto, moneys transferred from any other fund or sources,
    13  and  fifty  percent  of  all fines and forfeitures collected pursuant to
    14  paragraph (a) of subdivision one of section four hundred forty-one-c  of

    29  this section.
    30    5.  The monies shall be payable from the fund on the audit and warrant
    31  of the comptroller on vouchers approved and certified  by  the  attorney
