What is cash match?

Cash match is either the grantee organization’s own funds (general revenue) or cash donations from non-federal third parties (i.e. partner organizations), or by non-federal grants.  A cash match contribution is an actual cash contribution.  Cash used as match may be obtained from other state (non-DCJS), local, program income, or private sources.  Cash funds cannot be derived from federal sources.  Once funds are committed to match for this project, they cannot be used for match in other areas.
