In addition to procurement opportunities solicited directly by DURA, the Authority’s redevelopment agreements contain provisions that require developers who receive assistance to comply with DURA’s Small Business Enterprise (SBE) and First Source Hiring policies.
DURA’s SBE policy requires developers whose projects are financed in whole or in part with tax increment financing (TIF) to prepare and follow an SBE Plan to promote utilization of area SBEs. Currently active redevelopment projects which may have open SBE contracting opportunities are listed below.
|Colorado National Bank||Stonebridge Companies||Tommy Nigro

In connection with DURA’s primary goal of undertaking urban renewal projects to revitalize the City and foster sound growth and development, DURA’s First Source Hiring Policy is intended to provide preferential opportunities for employment and training of low-income Denver residents. DURA’s First Source Hiring policy requires developers whose projects are financed in whole or in part with TIF to require their contractors and any subsequent commercial tenants to participate in the First Source Hiring Program for a period of at least 10 years.
Denver residents who would like to register for hiring opportunities through First Source can do so at www.connectingcolorado.com.
