Early Learning Blended Funding

As Local Education Agencies (LEAs) assess early learning programs for children ages three to five to determine the need within their community, exploring the opportunities of blending early learning funds and services may be advantageous. Blended funding occurs when two or more funding sources are pooled to support educational costs to ensure consistency, eliminate duplication of services, allow for maximum flexibility of funds, and reduce burden.
