One-Stop Economic Resource One-Stop Economic Resource CenterCenter

Across our state, residents are struggling with dwindling savings, foreclosures, spiraling credit card debt, lost jobs and more. As a result, each day families in our state are forced to make difficult financial choices that will affect their lives for years to come.  These families deserve access to all the help available to them.

In an effort to help Washington state residents make informed financial decisions, access all of the help available to them, and to keep them informed on the very latest on economic recovery plans, I have established this One-Stop Economic Resource Center.

Here, in one place, you will find important economic resources from across our state and nation.  I hope this will provide assistance during these very difficult economic times.
