Washington Connection Community Partnership Program

Latest News / Announcements

On April 21, 2019, the Washington Connection Partner Account was updated to enhance security profiles.  Effective immediately, Washington Connection Assisting Agency Community Partners who have not logged in to their partner account in the past 180 days using their SAW User ID will be inactivated.  It's important to note that this change does not affect customers.  Ongoing, partner users will receive email notification informing them of impending inactivation at 150 days of non-usage. To avoid service interruption, please sign in and utilize your Washington Connection Partner Account regularly.
