Blending and braiding: Funding our kids 101


Funds can be blended or braided at a few different points: 1. Multiple revenue streams can be mixed together at the point of origination when the funds are granted to a state or locality. 2. The state or locality can mix revenue streams together when administering a program. 3.Individual recipients of government funds, such as a contracted nonprofit organization, may mix different fund sources together at the point of service delivery. In this fact sheet, we focus primarily on the second category: when states or localities take the multiple revenue streams at their disposal and bring them together to achieve a particular policy goal.
