Less Successful Examples of Matching Funds

Example 4: Byway Guide (Eligibility Category: Interpretive Information):

Source Type Description Amount
Byway Council members Services (Non-state or Non-federal) Donated labor: 10 meetings x 3 hours/meeting x 12 participants @ $15./hour = $5,400 5,400
Byway Joint Commissions Services (Non-state or Non-federal) Administrative support, accounting, office rental, telephone, copying 21,000
Byway Joint Commissions Cash From annual appropriation of $60,000 from the State 36,440
State Department of Transportation Services (Non-state or Non-federal) From State funds 1,000
Total $63,840

This example is less successful because it:

  • Includes an item not qualified as a source of matching funds. Note the contribution of services from a State transportation agency. State government services are not eligible as an in-kind match
