Two changes:

  • MSTIC stands for the Multi-System Trauma-Informed Collaborative (not Care)
  • DOH funds one ACEs Consultant.


Clarification:  The ACEs Public Private Initiative (RCW 70.305.005) ended at the end of 2017. The legislation is still in place, but the initiative has ended. 

The 2018 update to the legislative was that the Department of Early Learning no longer exists. It will be part of the new Department of Children, Youth and Families beginning July 1, 2018.
