(Recorded Webinar) Non-Federal Share Match Requirement for Head Start
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 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 increased. 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 serious 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 strategies for fulfilling documentation obligations.

At the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Identify items and services your program can count as match;
- Recognize how to document matching share;
- Understand why showing "overmatch" makes sense; and
- Discuss common and not-so-common pitfalls to avoid.
