Alaska is required to contribute a dollar-for-dollar match for ACMP funds received from the federal government. Coastal District Match The State does not require districts to provide a dollar-for- dollar match for grant funds provided. A portion of the district match is covered by the State.
CRSAs contribute 20 cents for each dollar. In FY06, districts are required to contribute $265,000, (approximately 37 cents for each dollar available for district grants.) Municipal districts contribute 50 cents for each dollar.
CRSAs are limited to in kind contributions to generate matching funds. Why is the contribution rate different for municipal districts and CRSAs? and CRSAs? Municipal districts have a broader range of opportunities to generate matching funds.
Districts have two options for providing match funds: Cash Contributions and In-Kind Contributions
Cash contributions Cash contributed to a grantee or subgrantee by other agencies, organizations, or individuals is also considered a cash contribution. are cash outlay contributed by a grantee in support of a project.
In Kind Contributions are property or services which benefit a project or program and which are contributed by a third party without or for a reduced charge to a grantee.
Nearly any documented expenditure that supports a district program (that is not reimbursed for by grant funds). Examples of Cash Contributions: A cash contribution to a district by a third party is also considered match if the contribution supports the district program. Obtaining a non-federal grant or contribution from a foundation, non-profit organization, or individual for required tasks or a special project can be applied towards a district’s match.

Examples of In-Kind Contributions… Donated services/volunteer work: Services provided to a coastal district by an individual that is not compensated for the service provided can be used as in-kind match.

There are federal rules that apply to match contributions for ACMP grants: Federal funds cannot be used for cash or in-kind contributions. RULES Match contributions can only be used in support of one project or program. Grantee records must document match contributions. Match amounts must be necessary and reasonable. The amount of a district grant should be reduced if required matching funds cannot be provided.
