Assistance considerations...

Length and Time Phasing of Assistance

Usually awarded for a fiscal year (October through September). States may obligate funds to provide assistance for a fifth fiscal year quarter (until December 31).

Formula and Matching Requirements

Public Law 107-288, signed on November 7, 2002 amended 38 U.S.C. and changed the grants to States for this functional staffing grant to a program grant. Therefore, this is no longer a formula for DVOP Specialist staff to be assigned to a State by the number of veterans residing in the State. Instead, a new formula was mandated that takes into account the ratio of the number of veterans residing in the State that are seeking employment compared to the total number of veterans seeking employment in the States. No matching is required.

Note:
A formula may be based on population, per capita income, and other statistical factors. Applicants are informed whether there are any matching requirements to be met when participating in the cost of a project. In general, the matching share represents that portion of the project costs not borne by the Federal government. Attachment F of OMB Circular No. A-102 (Office of Management and Budget) sets forth the criteria and procedures for the evaluation of matching share requirements which may be cash or in-kind contributions made by State and local governments or other agencies, institutions, private organizations, or individuals to satisfy matching requirements of Federal grants or loans.

Cash contributions represent the grantees' cash outlay, including the outlay of money contributed to the grantee by other public agencies, institutions, private organizations, or individuals. When authorized by Federal regulation, Federal funds received from other grants may be considered as the grantees' cash contribution.

In-kind contributions represent the value of noncash contributions provided by the grantee, other public agencies and institutions, private organizations or individuals. In-kind contributions may consist of charges for real property and equipment, and value of goods and services directly benefiting and specifically identifiable to the grant program. When authorized by Federal legislation, property purchased with Federal funds may be considered as grantees' in-kind contribution.

Maintenance of effort (MOE) is a requirement contained in certain legislation, regulations, or administrative policies stating that a grantee must maintain a specified level of financial effort in a specific area in order to receive Federal grant funds, and that the Federal grant funds may be used only to supplement, not supplant, the level of grantee funds.
