The Coordinating Council for Access and Mobility (CCAM), a group of federal agencies with a role in human services transportation, has released the CCAM Federal Fund Braiding Guide. Federal fund braiding for local match allows grant recipients to use funds from one federal program to meet the match requirements of another under certain conditions. CCAM members examined 61 of the 130 federal programs that may provide funding for human services transportation for people with disabilities, older adults, and/or individuals of low income. This guide defines federal fund braiding for local match and program eligibility to enable federal agencies and federal grant recipients to more effectively manage federal funds and coordinate human service transportation.
