Dunn Champions $100k in Funding for Homeless Bus Tickets

I’m pleased to announce that after much negotiation, I was successful in getting $100k in King County’s supplemental budget for purchasing bus tickets for the homeless.

The new $100K will expand family reunification services through existing programs while the County looks at how a dedicated family reunification program would best be designed and—a crucial component—how to track data on its success.

I believe that whatever is worth doing is worth doing well, and I support taking the time to make informed decisions. However, this $100k is not my last ask. San Diego and San Francisco both spend $1.2 million each on family reunification programs, and when the time comes, I will be asking for a larger investment to fund our own program here in King County.
