City of Spokane Proposition 1

Backers of the proposed Children’s Investment Fund want to attack Spokane’s dismal 29 percent high school dropout rat. The six-year levy would raise $5 million annually and cost property owners in the city of Spokane about 35 cents per $1,000 of assessed value. The money would be used to support early childhood learning, abuse and neglect prevention and treatment programs, mentoring programs, and before- and after-school activities.
