A.1. We would anticipate 1 to 4 proposals for each of the subject areas.
Q.2. Is there a certain percentage of the total project cost that will be
considered substantial and garner preference when an applicant provides
matching funds? Will both cash or in-kind contributions be accepted as
match? Is there a preference for either kind?

applications will be accepted through Grants.gov and via mail?
