Grants 101: What is Grant Packaging

Grant Packaging
No project is ever funded in total by a grant.  There is a need for layering of the funding sources to make a project happen.  Normally the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania has a 50% match on programs.  That means that you put up half the money and they put out half the money. 

Normally a funding entity will not let you match money from the same source.  In other words, you cannot match state money with state money and you can not match federal money with federal money. The idea is to find two funding sources with similar scope and similar timelines and match them.
