BUILD BACK STRONGER

Together, over the past year, Coloradans across our state  have been doing their part  to protect our state with a balanced approach of  saving  the most amount of Coloradans lives while allowing for the maximum amount of economic and social activity. . Now, we need to do our part again by sharing our best and boldest ideas on how we can   build Colorado back even stronger than we were before. 

Let’s build a future where each and every person in our state can _________.

Colorado, help us fill in the blank on what you think will help make Colorado even stronger. Let’s make good on the promise of a Colorado where people from all walks of life don’t just get by, but thrive.

How Would You Build Back A Stronger Colorado?

Colorado and our local governments are expected to receive billions of dollars from the 2021 American Rescue Plan. 

This provides our state with a unique opportunity to invest in areas that have been hit the hardest by the COVID-19 pandemic and to build back stronger by making economic investments that will benefit Colorado for generations to come.

Where do you think we should be investing?

Listening Tour

In an effort to better understand the needs and current economic challenges facing our state, Governor Polis, State Legislators from both sides of the aisle and the Treasurer’s Office will launch a statewide virtual listening tour to gather ideas from communities across the state on how federal stimulus dollars can  best be used to help our economy, and Coloradans, recover faster. These events are an opportunity to hear from community leaders and the public from across the State.

Our primary goal is to LISTEN.

Attendance will be limited at each meeting in order to allow for participation. The format is intended to be an innovative model and approach to getting significant community feedback over a short time frame to inform budget and policy choices.

REGIONAL, SECTOR, & COMMUNITY MEETINGS

Regional, sector & community meetings will occur over the next several weeks.


The remaining meetings are all full so be sure to share your ideas with us here. You can watch the videos below for the introduction the groups received about what is coming to our state.
