A182 - Municipal Research and Services Center (MRSC)

The Municipal Research and Services Center of Washington (MRSC) is a private nonprofit agency that provides local government officials with research, information, and advice under a personal services contract with Commerce pursuant to RCW 43.110. MRSC responds to requests for information on municipal law, finance, growth management, public works, management, and operations from Washington’s 281 cities and 39 counties. MRSC also maintains a vast knowledge base of municipal reference materials, produces a variety of publications, newsletters, and blogs, and operates a web site that receives over 3 million visits per year. These consolidated services reduce the need for local staff and are especially crucial to smaller units of local government. The MRSC is principally funded through a small portion of the cities' distributions of the state liquor profits and the counties' distribution of the liquor excise tax.

A011 - Strengthening Criminal Justice Response to Victims of Crime

Victims look to the criminal justice system to provide offender accountability and a sense of justice. The criminal justice system depends on the cooperation of crime victims for reporting, investigation, and sometimes prosecution and corrections. This interdependence has been recognized by both state and federal legislation and funding, resulting in specific programs within the Office of Crime Victims Advocacy. These programs improve coordination and response to victims as they interact with law enforcement, prosecution, courts, and crime victim services. This activity also funds services that support victim safety and support victim participation in the criminal justice system.

A012 - Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program

States are required by the federal Older Americans Act to have a Long-term Care Ombudsman Program. Commerce administers our state’s program under Chapter 43.190 RCW using multiple funding sources, including an interagency agreement with the Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) for Older Americans Act (Titles III B and VII) funds, State General Fund, and some local dollars. The Long-term Care Ombudsman Program ensures the safety and quality of care of long-term care facility residents by intervening when complaints and situations of possible abuse, neglect, or exploitation arise. Over 500 volunteer ombudsmen are trained, certified, and assigned to nursing homes, boarding homes, and adult family homes. The Long-term Care Ombudsman Program partners with the Office of Public Guardianship, to develop and offer training targeted to the legal community and persons working long-term care facilities. The training focuses on the different types of decision-making authority that guardians, persons with powers of attorney, and persons with surrogate health care decision-making authority have. Commerce contracts with a nonprofit organization to run the program, which subcontracts with 13 regional programs and two legal services contractors. Commerce's staff negotiates funding with DSHS, develops the statewide Long-term Care Ombudsman contract, monitors expenditures and performance, provides technical assistance, and approves plans and policies.

A013 - Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program

The Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) is a federal block grant program authorized by the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Act of 1981 (Title XXVI of PL 97 35, as amended). LIHEAP helps households with incomes below 125 percent of the federal poverty level meet the cost of home heating, avoid utility shut off, and reduce the use of unsafe heating alternatives. Commerce contracts with 26 community based organizations and local governments to provide funds directly to utility companies on behalf of eligible households. Contractors also provide energy education, furnace repair or replacement, and referrals for other services. Commerce is required to create a LIHEAP State Plan with participation from nonprofit organizations, low-income representatives, utility companies, and other community members. The agency administers contracts, monitors compliance, reimburses expenditures, provides technical assistance, establishes policies and procedures, operates a secure website for on line data entry and reporting, and evaluates contractor performance.

A019 - Train and Maintain Volunteers Supporting Community Capacity

This activity supports organizations that recruit, train, and maintain volunteers, mediators, and counselors who provide free or low cost services to low-income communities, children, and homeowners. Volunteers, mediators, and counselors allow organizations to expand their capacity to reach more vulnerable citizens and improve individual and community well-being. The Washington State Foreclosure Fairness Act Mediation Program provides homeowner foreclosure mediation. Retired judges, employees and volunteers of dispute resolution centers, attorneys and experienced mediators approved through the Foreclosure Mediation Program mediate in-person discussions between homeowners and representatives of financial institutions to reach an agreeable resolution after a referral. Dispute resolution centers train volunteer mediators so that all citizens have access to low-cost alternatives to litigation regardless of the clients' ability to pay. Dispute resolution centers also provide training and education related to mediation, communication, conflict resolution, and negotiation. The Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) uses the talents and experience of volunteers over age 55 to help with diverse community needs. Local RSVP coordinators recruit, screen, and work with city, county, and nonprofit programs throughout the state to place volunteers where needed. State funds count toward the 30 percent match required to receive federal RSVP support.
