Explanation: The ratio is the total federal appropriation divided by the total amount of non-federal funds raised by the Close-Up Foundation. For example, in FY2004, the Federal appropriation was $1,481,209, and the Close-Up Foundation raised $2,153,921 in non-Federal funds. The performance targets are based on the grantees' past performance in obtaining non-federal contributions. The goal is that , as federal funding remains constant, the amount of non-federal funding will increase.
