Colorado Just Transition Action Plan

On December 31, 2020, the Colorado Just Transition Action Plan was submitted to Governor Jared Polis and the Colorado Legislature.

The plan’s recommendations include supporting coal transition workers who are or will be laid off by connecting them with job and training opportunities, local, state, and federal resources, quality jobs, and more.

The plan also outlines how local leaders can help their communities grow with support from other partners, including the state. By attracting funding to support businesses and power local economic growth, by investing in infrastructure, and through other actions, coal communities can ensure their future prosperity.

The above are just a few of the plan’s recommendations. We encourage you to read the plan in its entirety here.

A summary of the Just Transition National Strategy can be read here. And read Governor Polis' letter to President Biden on these issues here.
