Expansion of Services

Expansion of ECEAP services in communities across the state is occurring yearly until 2022-2023. By that time, the State Legislature has determined that “any eligible child shall be entitled to be enrolled in the program “as codified in RCW 43.216.556 (Sec. 5).


This section includes documents related to the Request for Application and an overview of ECEAP that can be used to initiate conversations with potential subcontractors.
