Managing Head Start Non-Federal Share/Matching Requirements
Head Start programs must provide at least 20% of their total program costs through in-kind donations or cash match. These contributions must be used to support allowable costs under the Head Start grant for expenses that the program would otherwise use federal funds. Failure to comply with these requirements could result in a disallowances and negative audit or review findings.
This webinar will provide an overview of the non-federal share (also known as matching share) requirement, the most common ways that Head Start agencies meet their share requirements, and strategies for fulfilling documentation obligations. We will also cover answers to your most frequently asked questions, including:
- Which items and services count as match?
- How do you document matching share correctly?
- When should my program consider requesting a waiver of the match requirement?
The On-Demand version of this webinar will be available for purchase one week after the conclusion of the live webinar.
