The bill creates, initially within the department of labor and
employment, the Colorado office of new Americans (ONA). The bill sets
forth the ONA's duties and responsibilities and provides details regarding
funding. The ONA serves as the point of contact for immigrant-serving
state agencies, private sector organizations, and the public about
immigrant issues in Colorado, and has as one of its central purposes the

successful integration and inclusion of immigrants and refugees in our
state's communities. As its main priority, the ONA is required to
implement a statewide strategy to facilitate economic stability and
promote successful economic, social, linguistic, and cultural integration
by investing in the success of immigrants in Colorado.
