What is Local Match?

Local match is your financial portion of the CIF award. The Local Match Share consists of in-kind value and/or non-federal cash contributions. All fund recipients are required to contribute a 25% match of the total fund award (unless waived by the committee).

In-kind match examples can be: attendance at event/activity, travel time to and from destination of event/activity for the applicant and/or driver, time spent on presentations regarding event/activity the applicant attended and/or volunteer time.
