This report examines three related topics affecting participation and engagement in the Colorado Works program. They are: (1) Work participation activities and strategies; (2) Diversion policies among Colorado’s counties; and (3) Sanctioning practices observed in Colorado. The report’s findings are based primarily on three data sources: phone interviews conducted with 19 county Colorado Works directors during the spring and summer of 2007; program data from the Colorado Benefits Management System (CBMS) and from the Child Care Automated Tracking System (CHATS); and unemployment insurance (UI) wage records on employment and earnings.
