Determining how to use Title I, Part D (TIPD) funds is both an art and a science. The statute provides some guidelines but otherwise offers sub-grantees the flexibility to use funds in ways that best suit the needs of their local contexts. In a tough economy, educational settings must look to creative ways to strengthen service delivery for youth who are neglected and delinquent with strained state and local budgets. Blending and braiding funds will be the focus of the third and final topical call in this series. Specifically, we will discuss:

  • The difference between blending and braiding funds
  • Constraints on braiding and blending federal funding
  • State and local examples of programs that have or continue to operate with blended or braided funds
  • Ways in which your fellow State Title I, Part D coordinators are currently or considering blending and braiding TIPD funds at the SEA, SA or LEA levels
  • Technical assistance resources to help you encourage SAs and LEAs to blend or braid their TIPD funds

Co-Facilitator: State TIPD Coordinator, Heather Denny (MT)
