The applicant must contribute at least 10% of the total project costs. For example, if you are purchasing a banner that costs $80.00 (total project cost), you must contribute 10%, or $8.00. In this case, you could apply for up to $72.00 in grant funds. Applicants can certainly contribute more than 10% of the total project costs.
