Seeking your input! DDA is asking for your participation to provide input on future awards from the Dan Thompson Memorial Developmental Disabilities Community Services Account. We want to hear from you about what the process should look like and what type of projects should be funded. Please complete the survey below by close of business Oct. 13.
There is approximately $5 million dollars in the Dan Thompson Account for new applications to be spent by June 30, 2025.
RCW 71A.20.170 (6) states “Expenditures from the account must supplement, and may not replace, supplant, or reduce current state expenditure levels for supports and services in the community setting for eligible persons with developmental disabilities.” This means that grant awards cannot pay for services covered by DDA Home and Community Based Services waivers or Medicaid State Plan services.
Thank you for your input. The survey results will influence the design of the next round of applications for Dan Thompson Account funding.
