Neighborhood Equity & Stabilization (NEST)

In many of Denver's historic, fastest-changing neighborhoods, residents are faced with a rising cost of living, while locally owned businesses struggle with increased rent costs and the need to diversify their businesses to attract new customers from the evolving community.

Denver's Neighborhood Equity & Stabilization (NEST) division under Denver Economic Development & Opportunity was created to help preserve the culture and character of these neighborhoods by helping provide longtime businesses and residents opportunities to remain in place. NEST efforts are focused on the following priority neighborhoods, in addition to any other areas of Denver undergoing large-scale development: East Colfax, Elyria-Swansea, Globeville, Montbello, Northeast Park Hill, Sun Valley, Valverde, Villa Park, West Colfax, Westwood
