As a critical partner in Colorado’s workforce system, the Office of Adult Education Initiatives (AEI) is committed to improving adult educational attainment that will lead to meaningful employment, helping to break cycles of poverty and building stronger local areas within Colorado.

The Colorado Department of Higher Education (CDHE) announced the statewide attainment rate increased from 56.2 percent in 2018 to 56.9 percent in 2019, measured by the number of adults ages 25-34 who have earned a credential beyond a high school diploma.

The mini-grants will be between $5,000 and $10,000 and will support counties in the training and technical assistance process of developing a program to offer comprehensive sexual health education to young people in Colorado and the trusted adults who are involved with these young people.
