  • Print

November 1, 2018 Question: Our charter school is planning to apply for Local Solutions Grant funding. If a Local Solutions grant participant is currently employed at our school, can we count their current salary toward the matching funds requirement?

Answer: Charter schools can count a portion of the salaries paid by a funding source other than Local Solutions grant funding as matching funds. Specifically, the portion of the charter school employee's salary that applies to time spent participating in Local Solutions Grant-related activities may be counted as matching funds.
