This year, DCF’s Collaborative Grants will be awarded for projects involving a collaboration of two or more nonprofits within a single county. This year, the DCF will also ask applicants to include reference to DCF’s new community indicators website, DelawareFocus.org
The DCF expects to award one grant in each county. The maximum request per application is $100,000. Grant workshops will be held in early September in Wilmington and Georgetown. Applications are available at delcf.org/grants. The deadline is September 30.
