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. Match threshold requirements differ based on the funding opportunity you are seeking. Please make sure to 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. 

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 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.
