Webinar: Non-Federal Share in Head Start
Please note, this webinar was originally scheduled for August 29th and will now take place on September 5th.
Head Start programs are required to provide a 20% match of non-federal funds for the operation of their programs. This match (or "non-federal share") applies to regular Head Start and Early Head Start funds, as well as those received under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. Year in and year out, non-federal share is an ongoing trouble area for programs. At the end of this webinar, you will be able to:
- Distinguish what items and services your program can count as match;
- Recognize how to document matching share;
- Reinforce why showing "overmatch" makes sense; and
- Consider common and not-so-common pitfalls to avoid.
Based on our review of numerous examples from the field, we’ll also discuss what we think your non-federal share documentation forms should look like.
Who Should Attend: Executive Directors, Head Start Directors, Fiscal Staff, and Management Team, but anyone is welcome.
