Historically, ACF has found that the imposition of a matching requirement on awards under these programs results in an increased level of community support and, often, a higher profile in the community. This can contribute to the success and sustainability of the project. The Fiscal Year 2008 funding opportunity announcements for each listed program will advise applicants on the percentage of funds that must be contributed through non-Federal resources, the composition of the match, and the merit of the match as a criterion in the competitive review. The amount and acceptable types of non-Federal resources allowed is not negotiable. However, matching may be provided as direct or indirect costs. The presence and composition of matching funds may be used as a criterion in evaluating the merits of an application during competitive review. Specific information related to the matching requirement and competitive review will be provided in the specific funding opportunity announcement. Unmatched Federal funds will be disallowed. Costs borne by matching contributions are subject to the rules governing allowability found under 45 CFR 74.23 and 45 CFR 92.24.
