In the past three (3) years, the Head Start/Early Head Start program has transitioned to a five-year period of performance. The requirements for developing goals, objectives, and outcomes have changed the approach as to how non-Federal entities will identify and use their match (Non-Federal Share). Since Head Start programs are required to implement measurable objectives, the match (Non-Federal Share) has become a necessary resource in the support of implementing a program's measurable objectives. In addition, the NEW Head Start Performance Standards and The Uniform Guidance include regulation compliance with the match. 

This session will emphasize a systematic approach for identifying, budgeting, using, and documenting the required non-Federal share, as well as the regulations that support compliance. The training is designed to ensure non-Federal entities follow a structured approach confirming the match included in the grant application is appropriate for the program to implement its program objectives.

Additionally, the training will address an agency's need to request a waiver for all, or a portion of, its required non-Federal Share. A non-Federal entity must decide the appropriate time and amount of the non-Federal share to be requested for a waiver.

Finally, the non-Federal share must be reported internally to the governing body and policy council/committee and to the Office of Head Start three (3) times per twelve (12) month award period.   This session will provide participants with the report requirements internally and externally, the structure for reporting that aligns with the approved grant, and the procedure to reconcile the internal reports with the external reports using technology.  Non-Federal share continues to be one of the top findings during federal monitoring reviews. With so much on the line, non-Federal entities need to understand that their non-Federal share is critical to the success of their program.

By participating in this training, non-Federal entities will strengthen their program system for using their match to implement program objectives and achieve program outcomes efficiently and effectively.
