    combination of factors including but not limited
    to
  • State per capita income

    the program formula consistent with the
    appropriation level.

Match
21.3 STATE SHARE
78.7 FEDERAL SHARE
34 CFR 361.60(a)

Match
  • Typical Sources
  • State appropriations.
  • Transfers from other units of State government.
  • Third-party cooperative arrangements involving
    funds from other public agencies. (34 CFR

12
Match Calculation
  • FOR EXAMPLE
  • 27,800,000 (award amount) / .787 (Fed share)
  • 35,324,015
  • In this example, total program outlays must equal
    or exceed 35,324,015 for the grantee to utilize
    its entire Federal allotment of 27,800,000.
  • 35,324,015 - 27,800,000 7,524,015
  • (State share of program expenditures)

Match
Federal Allotment 27,800,000 Required State
Match 7,524,015 Total Program Outlay 35,324,015
34 CFR 361.60(a)
14
Match
  • Expenditures from both agencies - General and
    Blind - are combined to determine compliance with
    the match requirement.

15
Maintenance of Effort
  • In any given Federal FY, if State non-Federal
    expenditures fall below total State non-Federal
    expenditures for the fiscal year two years before
    the FY under review, the State has not met its
    MOE requirement.

34 CFR 361.62
16
Maintenance of Effort
FOR EXAMPLE
State Expenditures
FY 2011 14,665,000
2011 2 years
State MUST expend a minimum of 14,665,000 in FY
2013
17
Maintenance of Effort
  • FY 2011 14,665,000
  • FY 2013 14,000,000
  • MOE Shortfall ( 665,000)

18
Maintenance of Effort
  • FY 2013 MOE Shortfall (665,000)
  • This means
