Downtown Development Districts Rebate Program
The Downtown Development Districts Act was created to leverage state resources in a limited number of designated areas in Delaware’s cities and towns to:
- spur private capital investment in commercial business districts and other neighborhoods;
- stimulate job growth and improve the commercial vitality of our cities and towns; and
- help build a stable community of long-term residents in our downtowns and other neighborhoods.
Under this Act, funding was allocated through the General Assembly to DSHA for the purpose of establishing and administering the DDD Rebate Program. Investors who make Qualified Real Property Investments (QRPI) to commercial, industrial, residential, and mixed-use buildings or facilities may apply to DSHA for a DDD Rebate.
To be Eligible to Apply for a DDD Rebate
- The QRPI must be made within the boundaries of a designated DDD.
- The QRPI must be made in conformance with the approved District plan.
- The QRPI must be in excess of the required MQIT (deductible) and minimum QRPI for the specific set-aside.
- The QRPI must be made after the date the real property location is officially incorporated within the boundary of a designated District.
- The Investor must meet site control requirements (e.g. legal title, sales agreement, or owner’s consent).

- DSHA has established two funding set-asides for DDD Rebate selections, the Small Project Set-Aside and the Large Project Set-Aside, to ensure a variety of projects have ample access to the DDD funding.
- The Large Project Set-Aside has been further divided into a General Pool and a District Pool to ensure all Districts have reasonable access to the DDD funding. DSHA has allocated 50% of the Large Project Set-Aside to each of the pools.
- District allocations are based on the populations of each District.
