Length and Time Phasing of Assistance

Grants are awarded for a period of 3 years, and shall be provided by the Secretary to the State on an annual basis, as described by the formula information Section.

Formula and Matching Requirements

States that meet all of the eligibility requirements will be awarded funds based on the following statutory formula: (a) 70 percent of the total amount appropriated is allotted among the States based on the number of children under the age of 18 in each such State, except that each State shall receive not less then $175,000; and (b) the remaining 30 percent of the total amount appropriated is allotted in an amount that bears the same proportion to such amount appropriated as the amount leveraged by the State from private, State, or other nonfederal sources and directed through the State lead agency in the preceding fiscal year bears to the aggregate of the amount leveraged by all States from private, State, or other non- federal sources and directed through the lead agency of such States in the preceding fiscal year.

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.
