A Win-Win For Taxpayers And Communities

Jobs in healthcare, construction, manufacturing, and hospitality continue to have the highest job openings across the county. The investment in job training credits in the EZ reflects this need, with almost $144,000 in job training credits for healthcare and $133,000 in construction as examples of continued training and investment in people by companies in the Enterprise Zones.

North Suburban Medical Center, located in Thornton, Colorado, has been a primary example within the healthcare sector, which has benefited greatly from the job training tax credit. In 2022, they trained a total of 627 employees, with 79 being new employees to their operation.
