ZERO TO THREE Policy Center state updates
Thrive By Five Washington
Washington State has a strong history of supporting home visiting and taking creative policy action to guide that support. The centerpiece is the Home Visiting Services Account (HVSA), which was created in 2010 by the state legislature through a budget proviso. The HVSA leverages public and private dollars to support evidence-based and research-based voluntary home visiting models, as well as promising practices. Its structure ensures diversified funding and promotes long-term sustainability by braiding and blending funding sources.
