The budget asks for a ‘match’. What does this mean?

In order to capture information for the entire program budget (not just the portion requested by City funds), Amplifund asks for your agency’s ‘match’ to the grant award dollars. There is no threshold requirement. Staff and the Citizen Advisory Committee will use this information to look at the entirety of the program budget and evaluate award risk and leverage of city funds.

In your application for the 2022 Human Needs opportunity, the match is listed at 0%. This indicates the match threshold is 0% for performance metrics, however your budget will track the matching/in-kind funds you will be using to support implementation of the program and related services.
