  • “Extra” Match

  • School district matching funds will roll over annually:

    • More than 100% match in FY14: balance counts toward FY15.

    • No district’s “extra” match is applied to another district.

    • Each district is responsible for matching its own funds.

    • NMHED will not waive matching requirements.

    • When districts applied for this grant, they did so with the understanding that dollar for dollar match was required.
