About

The Washington State budget tops $30 billion each biennium. These funds are used to support everything from keeping our public schools running, fixing and maintaining our roads, preserving our parks and helping those in need.

Each year, the Governor, House and Senate release their proposed budget – sometimes things align within the budget and other times, they do not. By the end of the legislative session, they come to a mutually agreed upon budget for how funding should be allocated.

At Partners for Our Children, we are interested in how services for vulnerable children and families are funded. But the budget is very dynamic – an increase in one area could mean a decrease in another area, which might not have the best possible outcome in our opinion. That’s why we track the budget until it’s final. If you have any questions about the budget items, let us know.
