Façade grants for Small Businesses

Some exciting news for small businesses - Denver Economic Development & Opportunity’s Neighborhood Equity & Stabilization division has launched a new grant program to help small businesses improve, enhance, or repair the appearance of their storefronts/exteriors. These grants are aimed at increasing visual appeal, helping revitalize neighborhood spaces, and preserving the historic nature of some of Denver’s older neighborhoods.

In this pilot phase, the program will provide grants up to $75,000 with a minimum of $25,000 for a single project. Interested businesses are encouraged to review the eligible activities and apply online. Applications are expected to close at year end.

Changing your floor plan?

Please be aware that any liquor-licensed premise modifying an existing floor plan must submit a "modification of premises" application with the Department of Excise and Licenses. There are two types of modification of premises: temporary and permanent. The expiration date for a temporary modification of premises will vary and is tied to the date the liquor license expires. Instructions on how to submit an application, required documents, inspections, and fees are available on the modification of premises webpage below.
