I have a pretty good idea of how mileage works but would like to have a better understanding of how the league is allowed to help the team with things such as hotel and food and if there’s any procedures we need to follow?
We are thinking 4 rooms with three kids in each room with one adult.
Parents of players pay for their own rooms and own food.
Thanks for any help and advice.

Maybe you Should get a rollaway bed for each room.
We fund 6 rooms with 2 kids and 1 adult in each.
Make sure all of the adults have a Volunteer Form and have passed their Background Check.
You also need to provide some reasonable funding for food.
All of this needs to be approved by your Board.
The manager needs to collect all receipts and turn them over to the league treasurer after the Tournament.

Or lets say they did a car wash and raised $1500, could we just tell the manager “you have $1500, we don’t care how it’s spent as long as it is used on tournament expenses and you bring us back reciepts”...?

You could even go out and get a Sponsor or two.
I certainly wouldn't give the manager a "blank check" (so to speak).
No way would I use "league money" to pay for parents' travel/meals.

Where the money is coming from, how much to each family, what to do if there are siblings on a team, etc.
Get some donations/sponsors. Have a fundraiser or two.
Split it all up evenly between the families.
Just make sure it's all written out in black and white ahead of time.
Not doing so will cause problems.
It's okay if you don't give them the money right away, just make sure it's outlined.
You don't want a situation like Holbrook last year (or to give your parents the feeling that something shady is going on).

You hear these types of stories time and time again and they are depressing.
They can ruin/bankrupt a local league.
Just do an internet search on "Stealing from Little League" and you'll see how commonplace it is (unfortunately).
When will leagues (Boards) learn the importance of financial controls/management?
