|PRIORITY OF SERVICE|
Military Veterans are a vital part of Colorado's workforce.
Veterans have made many sacrifices serving this great country. For that
reason, the Colorado workforce system is proud to honor Colorado Veterans
with Priority of Service.
Covered Persons (veterans and spouses) who meet the eligibility requirements for program participation are entitled to Priority of Service in any workforce preparation, development, delivery and/or service program funded, in whole or part, by the Department of Labor.
Covered Persons are entitled to Priority of Service in Job Training and Education Programs provided the Covered Person satisfy the eligibility requirements for the program desired.
Covered Persons are entitled to Priority of Service in Job Development Services. This means Workforce Center Staff can assist in securing an interview with a potential employer by matching skills to the needs of an established network of employers in the local area.
Covered Persons are entitled to Priority of Service in Job Referrals. This means Covered Persons will have the opportunity to be referred to jobs posted in Connecting Colorado before the rest of the job-seeking public.
