A

HUD does not consider mainstream benefits provided directly to program participants match in the CoC Program because the benefits are not committed to the recipient/subrecipient for the activities funded through the project. Generally, such benefits are provided to the program participant and are based on program participant eligibility for that respective program. However, if funds from mainstream resources (e.g., TANF or Medicaid) are provided directly to an organization for use in a CoC Program project, then the mainstream resources may be counted as match so long as the other funding source does not prohibit their funds from being used as match for the CoC Program.
