EAST FLATBUSH/MIDWOOD — Three people in the race to fill the 45the council seat received matching funds on Thursday, as the 7-person race pushes on.

Candidates qualify for payments under the city’s matching funds program if they raise at least $5,000 in match-eligible, small dollar contributions, which means the first $175 from a NYC resident, and collect contributions of $10 or more from at least 75 city residents.

New York City Campaign Finance Board will cap matching funds $142,500.
