Counties & Commissioners Acting Together members advocate for a number of policies at the Colorado General Assembly. CCAT members and staff have identified the following core policy issue areas which guide their advocacy efforts.
- AFFORDABLE HOUSING – Create and implement tools and funding sources for affordable and available workforce housing solutions at the State and local level, which draw from and expand upon local efforts already underway.
- HEALTH CARE – Develop policies that support healthy lives for Coloradans ensuring the well-being of seniors; providing access to health care for all, including behavioral health care; and, improving access to effective and efficient public benefits and services.
