New Hampshire DOT is only hiring for winter maintenance positions.

In Wyoming we continue to hire under restrictions very similar to how MN & ID described their process. Health / Safety / Welfare positions are priority (Construction/Maintenance/Law Enforcement)- and we have been successful in most instances being able to justify that the Health / Welfare of WYDOT operationally is a benefit to the public as well. We have used that type of justification for some of the positions that don't often meet the obvious priorities like Admin and Accounting positions.

@Beth I would personally recommend building relationships and partnerships with HBCUs and organizations like NSBE, SHPE, etc. for those organizations, you can partner locally, regionally, and nationally. you can also partner with local nonprofits that have access to that demographic
