CDA Needs Your Help by Participating in the Upcoming Colorado Stimulus Funding Listening Sessions

The Colorado Department of Agriculture is excited to announce $76 million in stimulus funding has been approved by the legislature to support agricultural industries in Colorado.

The Department and Governor Polis have been focused on securing funding for agriculture as part of the Colorado Comeback initiative, the state’s stimulus plan aimed to help our state recover faster and build back stronger.

In order to determine how best to invest the funding, we invite you to participate in these initial virtual listening sessions. We will hold listening sessions for each of the stimulus funding programs.

To join the conversation, please register for the listening session you’re interested in. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing the Zoom link to join the meeting.
