Eagle County offers incentives for early child care professionals, recruitment
EAGLE COUNTY — The Eagle County Department of Human Services is now offering an Early Childhood Professional Recruitment and Sign-On Incentive program. Current employees of a licensed child care facility who recruit a new employee may be eligible to receive $750 as a recruitment incentive, payable after the new hire completes 30 days of employment. New employees may also be eligible to receive $500 after 30 days of employment at a licensed child care facility.
The Eagle County early childhood care system is currently experiencing high levels of turnover, especially at large child care centers, resulting in a lack of early childhood professionals, including teachers, assistant teachers and teacher aides. The purpose of this recruitment incentive and sign-on bonus program is to encourage individuals to join and continue within the early childhood profession.

While policymakers are celebrating a big drop in Colorado’s individual health insurance prices for 2020, they’re also scrambling to combat the sharp decline in the number of carriers in rural parts of the state where 22 of 64 counties have just one option on the Obamacare marketplace.
