Working to transform the child welfare system.

Senate: Funding is reduced to reflect a one-time deposit of $4 million general fund-state from the WorkFirst program into the Home Visiting Services Account. This funding will leverage a $2 million private match to expand evidence-basedhome visiting services for low-income clients and will count toward TANF maintenance of effort. The Department of Early Learning shall work with DSHS, Economic Services Administration to tailor these services to meet a Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) purpose so that spending on direct services to low-income clients will be counted toward meeting TANF maintenance of effort requirements. An estimated 640 additional low-income clients will be served. (Home Visiting Services Account) The remaining $16 million is a one-time reduction of unallocated general fund state fund balance.
