The Washington State Developmental Disabilities Council and the Developmental Disabilities Administration within Washington State DSHS are excited to provide an update regarding the status of awardees and expenditures from the Dan Thompson Memorial Developmental Disabilities Community Services Account.

To date, DDA has awarded just over $9 million on 35 executed contracts across the state. Four additional contracts are currently pending, and many more signed contracts are expected to be finalized later in the upcoming months.

“Each application is so unique, and we are very excited about the variety of supports and services across our state to meet gaps identified by our stakeholders,” said Debbie Roberts, DSHS Assistant Secretary for DDA. Learn more here: Dan Thompson Trust Acct Update Doc 1.17.23FINAL.pdf (wa.gov)
