DASH – Developing Affordable Starter Homes

The DASH Fund is a small loan fund for small or emerging developers who struggle to access traditional private capital sources, such as bank financing, while aiming to redevelop properties to sell to new homeowners.

The fund’s goal is to eliminate blight, increase access to affordable housing, and revitalize neighborhoods while building the capacity of emerging developers.


DASH Fund Baltimore City Project

The pilot city for DASH is Baltimore City. NCST is partnering with Neighborhood Impact Investment Fund (“NIIF”) and the Baltimore City Department of Housing & Community Development (“DHCD”) to launch the program. Baltimore-based Dominion Financial Services is providing DASH with loan servicing.


If you are a small developer in Baltimore and want to learn about applying for a loan, please send an email to dashinfo@dashfund.org.
