Dan Thompson Account

What is the Dan Thompson Account?

The Washington State legislature established the Dan Thompson Developmental Disabilities Community Services Account in RCW 71A.20.170. State grants are made to community organizations providing “supports and services in a community setting to benefit eligible individuals with developmental disabilities. Expenditures from the account must supplement (not replace, supplant, or reduce) current state expenditure levels” or duplicate Medicaid HCBS waivers.
