What Are the Exceptions to the Requirements/Prohibitions? Funds from certain federal economic development programs may be used for the local match, if the authorizing legislation for those programs specifically permit those funds to be used as the local match for other federal grant programs. The FAA has identified two such programs – (1) the Appalachian Development Corporation and the Tennessee Valley Authority.
