CERCLA and the NCP require states to share the costs of fund-financed remedial actions incurred at sites listed on the National Priorities List. A state's cost share can be paid in cash, credit, or in-kind services. This fact sheet explains state options for providing cost share as provided in 40 CFR Part 35, Subpart O, "Cooperative Agreements and Superfund State Contracts for Superfund Response Actions." 40 CFR §35.6105(b)(2)(i) states that where a facility is not operated by the state (or political subdivision), the state must pay 10% of the cost of the remedial action, and then section ii provides that where a state (or political subdivision) operates a facility either directly or through a contractual relationship at the time of disposal, the state must pay 50% (or greater as EPA may determine as appropriate) of the cost of removal, remedial planning, and remedial action. https://semspub.epa.gov/src/document/11/100001811
