(1) The department shall establish a reinvesting in youth program that awards grants
to counties for implementing research-based early intervention services that target
juvenile justice-involved youth and reduce crime, subject to the availability of amounts
appropriated for this specific purpose.
(2) Effective July 1, 2007, any county or group of counties may apply for participation
in the reinvesting in youth program.
(3) Counties that participate in the reinvesting in youth program shall have a portion
of their costs of serving youth through the research-based intervention service models
paid for with moneys from the reinvesting in youth account established pursuant to
(4) The department shall review county applications for funding through the reinvesting
in youth program and shall select the counties that will be awarded grants with funds
appropriated to implement this program. The department, in consultation with the Washington state institute for public policy,
shall develop guidelines to determine which counties will be awarded funding in accordance
with the reinvesting in youth program. At a minimum, counties must meet the following criteria in order to participate
in the reinvesting in youth program:
(a) Counties must match state moneys awarded for research-based early intervention
services with nonstate resources that are at least proportional to the expected local
government share of state and local government cost avoidance that would result from
the implementation of such services;
(b) Counties must demonstrate that state funds allocated pursuant to this section
are used only for the intervention service models authorized pursuant to RCW 13.40.464;
(c) Counties must participate fully in the state quality assurance program established
in RCW 13.40.468 to ensure fidelity of program implementation. If no state quality assurance program is in effect for a particular selected research-based
service, the county must submit a quality assurance plan for state approval with its
grant application. Failure to demonstrate continuing compliance with quality assurance plans shall
be grounds for termination of state funding; and
(d) Counties that submit joint applications must submit for approval by the department
multicounty plans for efficient program delivery.
