REAL Colorado is an initiative of the CCI Health and Human Services Steering Committee. The initiative is calling for a human services system delivered through local-state partnership that is more responsive, efficient and accountable. Since starting in November 2010, members of the initiative have played a key role in the following efforts:
- Asked Governor Hickenlooper’s Administration to develop an Executive Order regarding un-funded mandates on local governments. Executive Order 2011-005 Establishing a Policy to Enhance the Relationship between State and Local Government was enacted earlier this year.
- Collaboration between counties and the Colorado Department of Human Services to analyze federal and state funding streams for funded and un-funded requirements.
- Communication with the Colorado Department of Human Services as it undertakes a comprehensive review of all Human Services rules.
- Providing educational materials to Colorado legislators on the benefits of a locally-administered, state-supervised human services system.
- Amending CCI’s Policy Statement to incorporate the principles of REAL Colorado and provide guidance to all of CCI’s steering committees.
- Collaborating with the Colorado Department of Human Services in the development of their SFY 2012 budget priorities.
- Reaching out and securing the support of groups like the Metro Area of County Commissioners.
