Delaware Database for Funding Resilient Communities

Screenshot of the Delaware Database for Funding Resilient CommunitiesThe Institute for Public Administration (IPA) at the University of Delaware, with support from Delaware Coastal Programs, conducted an extensive search of financial assistance programs that support the implementation of resiliency-building plans and projects in Delaware and compiled the findings into an accessible and intuitive online searchable database. While planning and technical assistance programs were identified and included, IPA’s search prioritized financial assistance programs that support the implementation of high-cost activities such as infrastructure improvements, facility retrofitting, construction, and land acquisition.

Use the sorting feature to quickly and easily filter programs by four categories:

  • Type of assistance offered (grant, loan, etc.)
  • Project scope (land acquisition, energy efficiency retrofits, etc.)
  • Amount of financial assistance available
  • Whether or not matching funds are required

After making these selections, a list of search results will appear. Then click on the program title to reveal more in-depth information.
