In 2015, NCCP worked with the Colorado Center on Law & Policy to assess the impact of potential state policy reforms that included implementing Colorado’s child tax credit and earned income tax credit, introducing a free and universal prekindergarten program for four-year-olds, and initiating universal, full-day kindergarten for five-year-olds.  (See the impact of these policies by using the Family Resource Simulator (FRS) and selecting ‘Colorado’ for the state drop-down menu.)

Previously, in 2007, we worked with the Women’s Foundation of Colorado to assess the benefit “cliffs” that result from existing policies and to model potential improvements to child care assistance and other programs. Results of our analysis were presented across the state.
