"hardly any" is a negative counterpart to "only some", and the latter is analyzed by McCawley in The Syntactic Phenomena of English as an adverb used to compare or contrast its focus, here "some". The placement of "only", and I suppose this "hardly" as well, is governed by the rule that the adverb must be a syntactic modifier of some constituent which contains its focus, but which constituent is modified, when there are several choices, makes no difference to the sense.
So, just as "I had only some money coming in" means the same as "I only had some money coming in", because in the latter example "only" is attached to the V-bar which contains it's focus "some", we'd expect your two examples to mean the same. In my opinion, they do.
To verify this analysis, we can compare placement of the adverb after and before an indirect object verb (as McCawley does with "only"):
As we see, the pattern is the same.
