Annotation: Washington State has participated in the Drug Control and System Improvement Program funded by the Bureau of Justice Assistance since 1987; the program distributes funds to law enforcement, criminal justice, and nonprofit organizations at State and local levels to reduce the illegal supply of and demand for drugs.
Abstract: Using information extracted from program records and produced by economic modeling software, it is estimated that the program generated over $102 million in direct, indirect, and induced economic impacts between 1987 and 1992. Given an investment of $30.7 million in Federal funds and $16.3 million in State and local funds during the 6-year period, every dollar placed directly into the program generated another dollar in subsequent activity. Over 1,550 years of employment were directly or indirectly generated by the $47 million in Federal, State, and local funds. 3 tables
