The results obtained revealed that matching grants are yearly made available to states but Cross River State access to the grants to facilitate the implementation of UBE policies in upper basic schools between 2010 and 2014 is very low. Considering the finding of the study, it was recommended that to improve access to matching grants allotted by the federal government, the provision of counterpart fund policy should not be a condition to enable poor states access the grants that are lying dormant in billion of naira or such fund should be deducted not source from the allocation to states. If this is put in place, the national body (UBEC) rather than state body (SUBEB) should be charged with the responsibility of disbursement, procurement, execution and monitory of all projects covered by the grant for accountability.
