Background Information

Every four years, Colorado is required to submit a WIOA State Plan outlining what the State is doing to help its residents, including youth and those with significant barriers to employment, find high-quality jobs and careers. The plan also details how the State will help employers hire and retain skilled workers.

Two years after submitting the plan, it must be reviewed and modified to reflect changes in economic conditions and the labor market. We are currently in the modification period: the proposed changes are available on the CWDC website for the public comment period, which runs until February 18. Following the public comment period, the CWDC will incorporate feedback received during this period as well as during the Virtual Town Halls. Following a review process, the modified WIOA State Plan will be submitted to the United States Department of Labor.
