Focusing on companies relocating to or expanding in Colorado, the Colorado First program assists with training funds for new hires. 

The Existing Industry program focuses on providing assistance to established Colorado companies in order to remain competitive within their industry, adapt to new technology, and prevent layoffs. 

Masterworks Mechanical and HVAC professionals have received over $100,000 in grants for state of the art training. 

Grants, up to $200,000 per year per company, are contingent upon available funding.

Both programs are jointly administered by the Colorado Community College System (CCCS) and the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade (OEDIT) and managed through participating colleges.
