A State grant shall provide up to [50 percent] 75% of the eligible cost remaining after the federal grant has been applied. For projects designated under federal regulations, State plans, or the departmental regulations as eligible for poverty area funding, State grants shall amount to up to [75 percent] 90% of the eligible cost remaining after the federal grant has been applied.” Note: Figures in brackets are proposed to be removed from existing law.
