The Colorado Center on Law and Policy stands with diverse communities across Colorado in the fight against poverty through research, legislation and legal advocacy.
Colorado Center on Law and Policy promotes and advances economic security and access to health care for low-income Coloradans.
CCLP works with key policy stakeholders on economic security, health care, affordable housing and other critical issues. We have made a meaningful difference in the lives of Colorado's most vulnerable citizens. Whether we are increasing access to child care assistance, removing barriers to employment, assuring vital resources are available to people in times of need, or ensuring that Colorado's health care system works for everyone, CCLP has been at the forefront of positive change for over 20 years.
CCLP's staff combines their knowledge of public policy, in-depth research, and legal advocacy to address the aspects of Colorado's economy, government, and health care system that prevent people from getting ahead.
"Housing, access to health care, support for families, economic assistance and adult education policies will now make a meaningful difference in the lives of the people we serve. Many thanks to CCLP for providing outstanding leadership, expertise and commitment in moving these important measures forward."

"Project Self-Sufficiency is grateful for the wonderful work of the Colorado Center on Law & Policy. As an organization that assists low-income single parent families in Larimer County, PS-S counts on CCLP to carry the advocacy banner on a number of issues important to PS-S families. This past year CCLP played a key role in passing legislation in support of the State Earned Income Tax Credit and Child Tax Credit .Similarly, CCLP's successful promotion of Medicaid Expansion is expected to have tremendous impact on the lives of many disadvantages and low-income families throughout the State of Colorado. Thanks for all you do!"
