RZH Block Grants
Match Eliminated for RZH Block Grant Program
The matching requirement for the 2002 Resources Bond Act RZH Block Grant Program was eliminated with the passage of AB 1747 (Chapter 240, Statutes of 2003). The matching requirement still applied for all Park Bond Act of 2000 RZH programs and competitive 2002 Resources Bond Act RZH Urban and Nonurban Programs.
Due to the elimination of the match requirement, the Procedural Guide for the 2002 Resources Bond Act RZH Block Grant Program was revised.
