The city is gradually moving from an emergency response phase into one of relief and recovery. As of Wednesday, May 6, 2020, face coverings are mandatory while inside of or waiting in line to enter any retail or commercial business, or any location or facility offering government of health care services, and waiting for or riding on public transportation.

On May 9, 2020, many businesses were allowed to re-open with 50% of employees if able to maintain six-foot physical distancing, abide by the face-covering order and other guidelines.

Everyone is urged to stay at home unless absolutely necessary. We know this is a big ask of our residents and businesses, but it is a necessary step to ensure the health and safety of our community.


The Department of Housing Stability builds a healthy, housed, and connected Denver. We invest resources, create policy, and partner with organizations to keep people in the homes they already live in, to quickly resolve an experience of homelessness, and to connect people to affordable housing opportunities. We do this by:

  1. Stabilizing people at risk of involuntary displacement and connecting them to housing resources
  2. Supporting people experiencing a crisis and connecting them to shelter services and short-term and permanent housing
  3. Creating and preserving existing affordable housing
  4. Connecting residents at any income level to new housing opportunities

Individuals may donate directly to Denver's public/private Housing and Homeless Services Fund, for which Mile High United Way is serving as fiscal sponsor. Your gift will provide immediate support and services for Denver residents experiencing homelessness. Thank you!
