According to the Federal Uniform Administrative Requirements, cost sharing, or matching, is the portion of project costs not paid by Federal funds. Cost sharing represents a commitment by Oregon State of a third party, and may be in the form of cash or in-kind contribution. Because cost-share requirements can differ between solicitations, and compliance guidelines can be difficult to navigate, please consult the links below for Federal policy, Oregon State procedures, definitions, and general guidance.
