REMOTE — Colorado’s job seekers who have been affected by the pandemic can now take advantage of COResponds, a grant designed to help workers who are temporarily or permanently laid off due to the pandemic, including dislocated workers and long-term unemployed workers. The grant also serves people who are self-employed but have become unemployed or underemployed as a result of the pandemic.
Participants can explore the program’s 55 types of jobs, which include contact tracer, food deliverer, vaccine resource coordinator, and more.
The Colorado Department of Labor and Employment, the agency overseeing the grant, encourages job seekers to contact their local Workforce Center to see if they are eligible.
To learn more about COResponds, including whether or not you are eligible for assistance, please contact your local Workforce Center.
