The City and County of Denver moves to acknowledge and preserve the unique benefits Legacy Businesses bring to individual neighborhoods and the city as a whole, recognizing the challenges faced by legacy businesses and the ripple effect their closures can have on neighborhood character.
Denver’s Legacy Business program aims to celebrate these businesses for their contributions and works to unlock and accelerate support and anti-displacement strategies for businesses that have Legacy Business status.
Why apply for a Legacy Business designation?
Designated Legacy Businesses will appear on the City and County of Denver’s Legacy Business registry and will also receive:
- Public recognition & networking opportunities
- Marketing collateral & business promotion
- Access to customized training opportunities & technical assistance
- Tailored support and referrals to other city & state business support programs
Please note: businesses must apply and/or be nominated and be accepted into the Legacy Business program. Read more about eligibility requirements on the ‘eligibility tab.’
