The Division of Local Government was created in 1966, as a recommendation of the Governor's Local Affairs Study Commission, to:
- Provide technical assistance and information to local governments on available federal and state programs and act as a liaison with other state agencies concerned with local governments.
- Be a source of information to the Governor and General Assembly on local government needs and problems.
- Perform research on local government issues.
Program information and resources:
The Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade (OEDIT), in partnership with the Department of Local Affairs, administers the REDI program, which encourages local governments and businesses to join forces to develop community infrastructure and private facility projects and job training grants.
