Local funded programs must match a minimum of 25% of the allocated amount of federal funds with state and local contributions, which may be in cash or in-kind; the program must then maintain the level of effort in subsequent years. The funding level may be reduced proportionately if the applicant is not able to meet the match requirement.

Training and Professional Development: Program administrators are expected to participate in NDE-sponsored Adult Education Directors Meetings, and if unable to attend, must send at least one representative. The Adult Education Directors Meetings are held approximately three times per year.
