In 2017, FHLBank Pittsburgh and the University of Delaware Center for Community Research and Service awarded Blueprint Communities Delaware designations to two new teams in Delaware upon successful completion of the training program and finalization of their revitalization plans. CCRS continued to support these two communities through 2021 as they built their organizational capacity and worked towards implementation of the strategies developed during the planning process. The initiatives have been successfully sustained through the leadership of team members, partnering stakeholders and community involvement.
