Leveraging Resources & Aligning Services

blending and braiding funds
Blending and Braiding Funds
  • Blending funds involves co-mingling dollars into one "pot" for project support and so program needs can be met.  Blended funds goes into the "pot" and when it is utilized to pay for a project related expense, there is limited ability or a fiscal manager to report which funding stream paid for exactly which expense.Blending funding is politically challenging.  Some funding streams cannot legally, and or effectively, be blended.  Other streams will require the funder to allow an exception to how reporting normally functions. 
  • Braided funds involves multiple funding streams utilized to pay for service needed by a targeted group/audience, with careful accounting of how every dollar from each stream is spent.  Braided funding is often the only and most practical option for leveraging dollars.  Most federal funding streams require careful tracking of staff time, with requirements for allocation of personnel hours and other expenses to specific federal streams.
