Build Stronger Regional Listening Tour Dates
The state of Colorado and our local governments including cities and counties are expected to receive billions of dollars from the 2021 American Rescue Plan. This provides our state with a unique opportunity to invest in the areas that have been hit the hardest by the crisis brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic and to build back stronger by making economic investments that will benefit Colorado for generations to come. In an effort to better understand the needs and current economic challenges facing our state, Governor Polis, State Legislators 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 for the Legislature and the Governor to hear from community leaders and the public from across the State. Our primary goal is to LISTEN. 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.
