Colorado Works participants may receive short-term, non-recurrent benefits through state and county diversions. State diversion is intended for those participants who qualify for Basic Cash Assistance (BCA) but who do not require ongoing benefit payments. County Diversion is meant to offer benefits and services to a broader population than just those eligible for BCA.


Chart 5 below represents the caseloads for both State and County Diversions.
