The Health Care and Economic Security Staff Development Center (SDC) was established as a result of House Bill 12-1339 and exists to provide a complete training array to staff working with families who are accessing medical and other types of public assistance, such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Medicaid, CHP +, Aging and Adult Services, and the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program.

The SDC is the training connection between the Colorado Department of Human Services, the Colorado Department of Health Care Policy and Financing and the Governor’s Office of Information Technology to the 64 county departments of Social/Human Services, as well as medical assistance, presumptive eligibility and certified application assistance sites for Medicaid/CHP+ throughout Colorado.

The SDC is tasked with identifying essential training needs and establishing, facilitating, and maintaining integrated competency-based training curricula while continually evaluating results.
