Guide for using the online database for identifiying funding assistance for community resiliency projects

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

Financial assistance programs are available to support the implementation of projects to prepare for storms and sea level rise. Use the database below to search these funding opportunities. 


The 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.

For additional information, review the database fact sheet or watch the video tutorial.

Special consideration is given to projects that help bridge rural and urban community resilience needs with focus on the interconnectedness of natural systems and community well-being. Category 1 projects should be implemented at a scale that yields measurable and sustainable benefits for natural habitats while also providing measurable and enhanced community benefits. Category 2 Grants ($100,000 to $250,000) will support highly-impactful and visible projects that help communities understand, organize and take action to address risks and opportunities through improved resilience brought about by enhanced natural features.  This can include resilience solutions benefiting multi-family affordable housing through green infrastructure such as tree canopies/pocket parks/community green spaces, and/or stormwater retention projects. Category 2 grants can also support organizations that build capacity to help cities plan for enhanced resilience through green infrastructure or other improvements</p><p>​Grants requiring 1:1 match.<br></p><p>​Between $100,000 and $500,000 depending on the category<br></p>resilient-communities-program
