Looking to diversify Routt’s workforce


Yampa Valley Autism Program applies to Northwest Enterprise Zone

Routt County officials are showing support for the Yampa Valley Autism Program’s application to become a project for the Northwest Enterprise Zone.

Entry into the program comes with a tax credit that county officials hope will help diversify the workforce and incentivize donors.

The Yampa Valley Autism Program serves individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities. A pillar of the program is providing vocational training and transition programs to support the employment of individuals ages 15-21.
