What are CoC Program match requirements?

Statutory provisions of the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act require recipients of CoC Program funds to “match” a portion of the CoC funds they receive. Simply put, “match” is the non-federal share of costs that the recipient is required to contribute to accomplish the purposes of the grant. The following sections outline the specific rules CoC recipients must follow to meet the match requirements.
