Blending & Braiding of Funds
Maximize the impact of child care funding.
Why Blend & Braid funds?
Blending and braiding allows multiple funding streams to be used to fund or supplement child care costs. Our platform gives you insight into cost-allocation to prevent duplicate funding and ensure that funding is effectively distributed. Federal, state, and local policymakers and program administrators can use the data generated in our platform to analyze funding streams and impact.Request a demo
One streamlined application
Families can apply for multiple subsidies through one application and be screened simultaneously to get more comprehensive funding quickly.
Maximize the impact of available funds
Families can apply for multiple funding streams at once. State administrators are able to identify families who require additional assistance and fund them accordingly. When future funds are available, these families can be contacted to re-apply.Talk to a specialist
