Frequent Questions

F05: If in calculating the total cost, you propose $10 million for the cost of the program plus $1 million for cost share/matching, would the total cost be considered $11 million thus above the $10 million threshold?

The "not to exceed" dollar amounts listed under threshold criterion 3 (under section III.C. of the Request for Applications), include only the requested federal funding, and do not include any cost share/matching amounts. In your example, if an applicant submitted an application requesting $10 million of federal funding and agreed to provide an additional $1 million in cost share/matching, then the application would be evaluated as a $10 million project for the purposes of determining compliance with the threshold requirement in Section III C. 3. The application would comply with the requirement in your example.
