Blended & Braiding: How to Consolidate & Coordinate

July 25, 2018 at 1:00 pm EST

By: Leigh Manasevit, Esq.

Course Description: As available resources become increasingly sparse, maximizing the use of available funding is key to implementing successful programs.  Certain federal programs allow for consolidation of various funding streams.  Even without authority to consolidate, grantees and subrecipients should also consider ways to use available funds in conjunction with other funding streams to avoid redundancy and unnecessary duplication.  This webinar will explain blending and braiding federal funds, focusing on the processes required to blend and/or braid the funds. Finally, it will explore the benefits available by taking advantage of these flexibilities.
