Assistance Considerations

Formula and Matching Requirements

Statutory Formula: Title 15 - Commerce and Foreign Trade, Chapter IX - National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Part 923 - Coastal Zone Management Program Regulations, Subpart B. As required by Section 306(a) of the CZMA (16 U.S.C. 1455(a)), matching funds requirements for CZMA administrative grants may be found at 15 C.F.R. 923.110. In general, match is required at a ratio of 1:1 for administrative grants. For enhancement grants under Section 309 of the CZMA (16 U.S.C. 1456b), non-federal match is not required. Matching requirements are not applicable to this program. MOE requirements are not applicable to this program.

Length and Time Phasing of Assistance

Assistance is typically available to formula recipients for 12 to 18 months with a possible extension not to exceed a project period of 3 total years. Extension requests will be considered by the federal program office only if the recipient has submitted all required performance reports. At least sixty days prior to the end of the award, recipients must discuss with their federal program officer expected reprogramming and extension requests. After preliminary negotiation on proposed projects and extensions, formal written reprogramming and extension requests must be submitted to the NOAA at least 30 days prior to end date. Recipients should make every effort to submit one extension request for all projects needing an extension (when possible, multiple extension requests should be avoided). With sufficient justification, the federal program office will recommend approval of an extension up to 1 year for the first extension request. First time or cumulative extension requests for more than six months but less than 12 months, will need more compelling justification as to why the project was not completed on time or could not be completed within the first six-month extension. Although the federal program office discourages extensions of more than 12 months, the federal program office will recommend approval in cases where the funds are already obligated. Renewal of an award to increase funding or extend the period of performance is at the total discretion of the Department. See the following for information on how assistance is awarded/released: Funds are released as agreed to in the Standard Terms and Conditions document required for each grant; and special award conditions as applicable.

A non-Federal entity that expends $750,000 or more during the non-Federal entity?s fiscal year in Federal awards must have a single or program-specific audit conducted for that year in accordance with the provisions of the OMB Uniform Guidance (see Subpart F to 2 C.F.R.
