How do I know if matching or cost-sharing is required?

There are several ways to determine whether ONC requires matching or cost sharing under a funding opportunity. One of the required data elements of the synopsis of the funding opportunity posted at is whether cost sharing or matching required, which is indicated by a Y or N.

In addition, in Section III of the funding opportunity announcement, ONC will indicate whether cost sharing or matching is an eligibility requirement and if there are any restrictions on what may count toward meeting such a requirement, for example whether third-party in-kind contributions are acceptable. If matching or cost sharing is not required, the funding opportunity announcement will explicitly state that fact.
