Delaware Community Needs Grants -In May 2021, the Delaware COVID-19 Strategic Response Fund’s Community Needs Grants program will provide an opportunity for Delaware nonprofits to apply for general operating grants. The Fund is committed to keeping organizations strong and helping to them keep going, as they “return to normal” or embrace a “new normal,” as the effects of pandemic are ongoing.
 This will be the focus of this current round; future rounds may have a different purpose based on the evolving needs of the community. These grants will be flexible and will allow organizations to use funds as needed to continue to operate in the midst of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Our goal is to fund a mix of organizations in communities across Delaware and to support organizations working in a range of fields addressing an array of challenges. Each successful applicant is eligible for a grant of $10,000 per organization in this round.  To learn more information on the grant opportunity, please click Here.
