Aurora meeting explains how to benefit from economic recovery

Colorado residents can learn how to benefit from the economic recovery at a meeting set for 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 1, in Aurora. That's tomorrow, in case you're scrambling for a calendar.

Last year, President Barack Obama signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to fund the nation's economic recovery and help those communities most in need. People who attend the meeting will learn how increase unemployment insurance benefits by continuing education and getting new job skills, where green jobs are being created and how to get them, and about tax breaks available under the Recovery Act.

The meeting will be at the Living Water Christian Center, 1585 Kingston St. Dinner and child care will be provided. The event is sponsored by FRESC Good Jobs Strong Communities, 9to5 National Association of Working Women and the Colorado Progressive Coalition.

For background on the Recovery Act, check analyses from the Colorado Fiscal Policy Institute.
