Description

This webinar serves as technical assistance for workforce grantees to understand how to leverage or “braid” multiple funding sources to achieve improved outcomes for our customers. Webinar attendees will learn how Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) funds can be leveraged or braided with other funding streams and how to properly track funds. The webinar will also showcase examples of local areas that have leveraged “braided” funds.
