Less Successful Examples of Matching Funds

Example 5: Wayfinding (Eligibility Category: Interpretive Information):

Source Type Description Amount
National Forest Service Cash   12,000
Byway Coordinator and other volunteers Services (Non-state or Non-federal) In-kind time donation 10,000
Forest Service Personnel Services (Non-state or Non-federal) Meeting time, coordinating with contractors, assisting with projects 3,000
Other partners Cash   5,000
Total $30,000

This example is less successful because it:

  • Includes an item not qualified as a source of matching funds. Note the contribution of services from Forest Service Personnel. In-kind services in either the form of services, property or materials cannot be contributed by a Federal agency
