The Healthier Washington Community Health Worker Task Force made recommendations to align the Community Health Worker (CHW) workforce with the Healthier Washington Initiative, including the development of a training and education framework as well as the development of additional recommendations to support the sustainability of the community health worker (CHWs) workforce. This one-time request supports moving the CHW Task Force recommendations to actions that will further develop this key workforce.
