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 continues to support these two communities as they build their organizational capacity and work towards implementation of the strategies developed during the planning process.
