Dec. 27, 2021 - Has your job or education been disrupted by the pandemic? Through the Colorado Recovery Plan, funding is available to support individuals in getting the training, work experience, and support services needed for in-demand jobs and careers. You can start your journey and explore the available opportunities at ReadytoRiseCO.org.
Whatever your previous education or training, the opportunities in the Colorado Recovery Plan can support you in completing the credential or degree needed for a quality job. A variety of programs combine financial support with additional services such as career planning and coaching, connection to careers, and connection to community and public resources (such as transportation assistance, legal aid services, etc.).
A skilled workforce is key to a strong economy. The strategic investments in Coloradans, businesses, and communities across the state made through the Colorado Recovery Plan will stimulate our economy and strengthen our collective future. In 2019, the lack of qualified talent in Colorado was one of the greatest inhibitors to business growth. These stimulus opportunities will help equip Coloradans with the skills our economy demands and will ensure that businesses can recover faster and grow stronger.
