Each Section 319 project must have a 40% match of either cash or in-kind services of the total project cost. (The minimum match requirement can be calculated by multiplying the requested funding by .667) Match documented must be directly associated with the project and for work done to fulfill the contract tasks. Federal dollars may not be used to match Section 319 grant funds, which are also federal dollars. A letter of commitment from any organization pledging matching funds or in-kind services must be attached to the application. All activities eligible for grant funds are eligible to be documented as match, excluding Federal sources. Activities not eligible for grant funds are also not eligible match. Match for volunteer time should be calculated as the money it would cost in the current market to hire the job/activity done. If you are unsure of the value of volunteer time, contact the Nonpoint Source Program for guidance.
