Ongoing programs are continuing efforts that provide regulatory oversight, technical support, implementation resources, financial resources, or other guidance. State, federal, local, tribal, and nongovernmental ongoing programs are the critical foundation for Puget Sound recovery. They form the base of activities upon which Puget Sound recovery priorities and actions are built and dependent. The Partnership maintains an inventory of ongoing programs (see table below), building on inventories included in the 2016-2018 and 2018-2022 Action Agendas.
State ongoing program financial information
In May 2019, the Partnership and several Washington State agencies collaborated to gather and report financial information about the ongoing programs administered by state agencies. This resulted in the assembly of budget information for the 2015-17 and 2017-19 biennia on 102 of 113 inventoried state agency programs in the 2018-2022 Action Agenda. This inaugural effort enables the Partnership and partners to better identify and understand investment needs and trends for Puget Sound recovery (see ‘Ongoing Program Financial Information’ table below to view the data). Financial information for state ongoing programs will be updated with information from the 2019-21 biennium in summer 2021. Additional notes:
