The 2022 Policy Priorities

The Partnership publicly announced its 2022 Policy Priorities, which are intended to ensure members of this community can earn a wage that allows them to support themselves and their families, live where they work, and achieve economic mobility. The following have been identified as Tier 1 priorities, meaning they will be more intentionally advocated for during the 2022 legislative session.

The Partnership has also identified several Tier 2 priorities that they will monitor and take action on a case-by-case basis:

  • Access to healthy foods
  • Access to internet and web-enabled technology
  • Access to health care
  • Improve health outcomes related to air quality
  • Expand co-responder programs
  • Remove barriers for undocumented individuals
  • Remove barriers to increased enrollment in higher education (credential, license, 2 – 4 year)
  • Increase financial support for all learners
  • Increase funding from the state for schools
  • Remove barriers to enrollment in and access to workforce training

The Rocky Mountain Partnership Scorecard

The State of the Rocky Mountain Partnership marked the soft launch of the Rocky Mountain Partnership Scorecard. The Partnership agreed on the initial 30 metrics that are included, that fall within the network’s five community well-being areas.

The Scorecard is live on the website and is publicly available. The Partnership will use it to:

  • Measure progress towards shared priorities and targets in areas where collective work is happening
  • Understand how the data is trending over time – including what is likely to happen if no action is taken in applicable areas
  • Show the progress towards closing equity gaps for populations most impacted by existing systems
