Our Progress

This plan submission is the culmination of nine months of activity to gather support and input from throughout Colorado into the goals for the next four years for workforce development. The final version incorporated comments received through a public comment process. The final state planan accessible version, and comments regarding draft plans are available online. The local and regional plans can be accessed on our website as well.
