DENVER (AP) - Colorado officials have approved nearly $20 million in incentives for seven companies looking to establish or grow their operations along the Front Range.

The Denver Post reports (https://dpo.st/2gRhrTe ) the move by the state’s Economic Development Commission on Thursday could bring 1,500 jobs spanning from Larimer County to Colorado Springs if all the companies agreed to the deal.

The companies, which haven’t yet been identified, include an organization focused on commercial and industrial products for energy and aerospace. That company has been offered $7 million to create 500 jobs in Larimer County.

One software company expected to create nearly 300 jobs in Arapahoe County has been offered $4.5 million.

A food manufacturer based in the Midwest is also considering expanding its operations in Colorado, adding more than 300 positions.
