Washington State JDAI Infrastructure & Support

As of 2022, there are seven jurisdictions formally participating in the Washington State JDAI Project: Adams, Clark, King, Mason, Pierce, Snohomish, and Whatcom Counties. These seven counties represent 61% of the total juvenile population in Washington ages 10 to 17 years, and 64% of the youth of color population. In order to ensure support of these jurisdictions and the vital need for collaboration among them, a statewide infrastructure has been designed.

JDAI State Steering Committee

The JDAI State Steering Committee meets on a quarterly basis where all seven jurisdictions as well as several statewide organizations and agencies are represented. Steering Committee members focus on identifying cross-cutting issues for all sites, sharing expertise and information on policy and program impacts, and make decisions regarding how to communicate about the work and support those implementing the model at the local level.
