In order to capture information for the entire program budget (not just the portion requested by City funds), AmpliFund asks for your organization's ‘match’ to the grant award dollars. Match can include funding from other sources such as federal or state funding, other city or county funding, private donations or foundations, in-kind match etc. Staff and the Citizens Advisory Committee will use this information to look at the entirety of the program budget and evaluate award risk and leverage of City funds.
Match threshold requirements differ based on the funding opportunity you are seeking. In your application for CDBG Public Services, HOME, and AHTF 2060, 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.
CDBG Non-Public Services require a 100% match.
Award Requested is the grant-funded amount being requested from the City of Everett
Total Award Budget is the sum of the award requested and any match contributions
Please read the 2023 Application Guidelines and refer to the AmpliFund applicant training video if you need further instructions on how to complete the budget section.
