Funding Award Details
In its first six funding cycles, Deutsche Bank Americas Foundation's SHARE program granted awards to 59 organizations developing and preserving over 7,000 supportive housing units. Awards are made available every three years. DB SHARE 7 was announced in the fall of 2016.
Each grant recipient receives a three-year award of $125,000 per year for a total of $375,000. The annual award amount consists of a $85,000 project-specific grant and a $40,000 recoverable grant to be repaid within three years of disbursement (the three loan installments must be repaid in years four, five and six, respectively.)
Applying organizations must have:
- A history of sound financial management
- Proof of New York State nonprofit and tax-exempt status
- Its headquarters and proposed development located within the five boroughs of New York City
To submit a competitive application, Deutsche Bank recommends that the applicant have (or be close to obtaining) site control. Letters of interest should evidence resources such as land, funding and development partners that are committed in support of achieving plan objectives. Less experienced organizations are recommended to partner with well-established nonprofit or for-profit allies. Deutsche Bank asks that applicants highlight best practices, innovation and design quality.
