Bill Summary

The bill creates, initially within the department of labor and employment, the Colorado office of new Americans (ONA). The bill sets forth the ONA's duties and responsibilities and provides details regarding funding. The ONA serves as the point of contact for immigrant-serving state agencies, private sector organizations, and the public about immigrant issues in Colorado, and has as one of its central purposes the successful integration and inclusion of immigrants and refugees in our state's communities. As its main priority, the ONA is required to implement a statewide strategy to facilitate economic stability and promote successful economic, social, linguistic, and cultural integration by investing in the success of immigrants in Colorado.
