Contents of the Catalog
The Catalog contains state financial
assistance projects available to the following nonstate entities: local
governments, nonprofit organizations, and for-profit organizations. A local
governmental entity includes county agencies, municipalities, special districts
or any other entity (other than a district school board or community college),
however styled, which independently exercises any type of governmental
function. A nonprofit organization is a corporation, trust, association,
cooperative, or other organization that is primarily operated for scientific,
educational service, charitable, or similar purpose in the public interest.
Such an entity is not organized primarily for profit, but rather uses net
proceeds to maintain, improve, or expand the operations of the organization,
having no part of its income or profit distributable to its members, directors,
or officers. A for-profit organization is any organization or sole proprietor
that receives a state award but is not a local governmental entity or a

contracts used to buy goods or services from vendors or contracts to operate

Catalog. Additionally, state matching funds provided for federal programs are
also excluded on the basis that the requirements pertaining to the funds are
subject to audit under the Federal Single Audit Act.
