We receive some funding from both the state Legislature and the federal government.

There are two Washington State Funds that support our program:

  • State General Fund—(This is an appropriation from the Legislature)
  • 01-F Fund—(This is a dedicated fund from inmate phone fees)

We receive a grant from the U.S. Department of Justice, which reimburses 60% of net payments from state funds three years earlier.

Administrative costs are paid out of the state General Fund. Claim benefits are paid from all three funds (State General Fund, 01-F and Federal Grant).
