(5) A description of the interagency coordination, technical assistance and financial support which together with the funding assistance, the resources of the applicant and support from any other source, is sufficient to ensure the success of the project.  The commitment of financial support from the project sponsor shall be equal to or greater than twenty-five percent of the amount of the total project cost.

4. An application shall only be submitted to the division after review by the private industry council operating within the service delivery area in which the project is to be located, regardless of the actual project sponsor.  It shall include the signatures of the workforce investment board chairperson and the designated chief local elected official of the local workforce investment area.
