Jobs for the Future developed a braided funding toolkit. In Accelerating Opportunity, braided funding, the weaving together of various state, federal, and private funding streams, along with funding strategies, is critical to implementing integrated career pathways.
The Braided Funding Toolkit provides Accelerating Opportunity state teams and colleges with resources to identify the major federal and state funding streams that may be available to support integrated career pathways and their students. The toolkit, built in part from the Center for Law and Social Policy’s Federal Funding for Integrated Service Delivery Toolkit, is designed to support state and college teams through the complex process of developing a comprehensive, sustainable funding model for integrated pathways. http://application.jff.org/braided_funding_toolkit/
