Formula and Matching Requirements
States, tribes and territories are required to make available nonfederal contributions (cash or in- kind) toward such costs in an amount equal to not less than $1 for each $3 of Federal funds provided in the cooperative agreement. Such contributions may be made directly or through donations from public or private entities. Payment for treatment services or the donation of treatment services may not be used for nonfederal contributions. States, tribes and territories may include only nonfederal contributions in excess of the average amount of nonfederal contributions made by the State, tribe or territory for the two year period preceding the first fiscal year for which the State, tribe or territory is applying to receive a cooperative agreement for a comprehensive breast and cervical cancer early detection program.
A formula may be based on population, per capita income, and other statistical factors. Applicants are informed whether there are any matching requirements to be met when participating in the cost of a project. In general, the matching share represents that portion of the project costs not borne by the Federal government. Attachment F of OMB Circular No. A-102 (Office of Management and Budget) sets forth the criteria and procedures for the evaluation of matching share requirements which may be cash or in-kind contributions made by State and local governments or other agencies, institutions, private organizations, or individuals to satisfy matching requirements of Federal grants or loans.
Cash contributions represent the grantees' cash outlay, including the outlay of money contributed to the grantee by other public agencies, institutions, private organizations, or individuals. When authorized by Federal regulation, Federal funds received from other grants may be considered as the grantees' cash contribution.
In-kind contributions represent the value of noncash contributions provided by the grantee, other public agencies and institutions, private organizations or individuals. In-kind contributions may consist of charges for real property and equipment, and value of goods and services directly benefiting and specifically identifiable to the grant program. When authorized by Federal legislation, property purchased with Federal funds may be considered as grantees' in-kind contribution.
Maintenance of effort (MOE) is a requirement contained in certain legislation, regulations, or administrative policies stating that a grantee must maintain a specified level of financial effort in a specific area in order to receive Federal grant funds, and that the Federal grant funds may be used only to supplement, not supplant, the level of grantee funds.
