Non-Federal Share Match Requirement for Head Start (September 2017)

Head Start programs must provide at least 20% of their operating costs through in-kind donations or cash. These contributions must be used to support actual operations of the Head Start program and be used for expenses that the program would otherwise use federal funds for if they were available. The match or non-federal share requirement has always existed, however, enforcement of it has recently been stepped up. That’s why it’s more important than ever to make sure you are not only meeting your non-federal share requirements, but also providing adequate documentation. Failure to comply could result in a financial penalty.

This webinar will provide an overview of the non-federal share requirement, the most common ways that Head Start agencies meet their share requirements and documentation obligations.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Distinguish what items and services your program can count as match;
  • Recognize how to document matching share;
  • Reinforce why showing "overmatch" makes sense; and
  • Consider common and not-so-common pitfalls to avoid.
