The province North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) and the city of Cologne have recognized how important it is to provide a solid, lasting foundation for DOMiD's one-of-a-kind collection. For that reason, NRW's Ministry of Culture and Science facilitates the protection and expansion of DOMiD's archives. The city of Cologne provides for the accommodation of the documentation center. Additional financial support is granted by NRW's Ministry of Children, Family, Refugees and Integration.
