These awarded grant funds must be matched by non-federal monies on at least a 50/50 basis, though grantees may elect to overmatch. Grant funds are distributed on a reimbursable basis (in other words, the recipient makes an expenditure and is subsequently reimbursed for the grant portion of the expenditure when the necessary billing documentation is received).
