The Washington State Legislature provided $150,000 in funding for the Kitsap Regional Coordinating Council to conduct a Telework Pilot Project. The funding was administered through the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) Commute Trip Reduction (CTR) Program.

Teleworking, also called Telecommuting, has numerous benefits to both employer and employee, and it has the potential to significantly reduce the number of vehicles on the road, translating to reduced highway construction and maintenance costs, and reduced carbon emissions.

The Telework Pilot Project runs from May 2008 through June 2009. In the summer of 2009, when the pilot project wraps-up, the project team will present to the State Legislature a progress report of what was learned, as well as the completed Telework Toolkit. In addition, the project team will create a template for Cities, Counties and other agencies that want to use the toolkit to promote teleworking in their jurisdictions or regions.
