Date Introduced 01/08/2020

For the state fiscal year commencing July 1, 2020, the amount of
basic cash assistance a Colorado works program recipient (recipient)
receives must equal or exceed 100% of the amount of basic cash
assistance in 2019 plus 10%.
Commencing July 1, 2021, the department must annually increase

the amount of basic cash assistance a recipient receives by a cost of living
adjustment equal to 1.5% or the federal social security administration's
cost of living adjustment that year, whichever is greater.
The joint budget committee (JBC) must review the sustainability
of the Colorado long-term works reserve to fund the cost of living
adjustment, and, if the JBC deems necessary, identify additional sources
of funding.
