Coordinating Council on Access and Mobility (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. Section 200.306(b) of Title 2, Code of Federal Regulations, prohibits federal fund braiding for local match "except where the federal statute authorizing a program specifically provides that federal funds made available for such program can be applied to matching or cost sharing requirements of other federal programs."

CCAM members examined 61 programs of the 130 federal programs that may provide funding for human service transportation for people with disabilities, older adults, and/or individuals of low income. Based on the input from each participating agency, 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.
