Delaware Database for Funding Resilient Communities

The Institute for Public Administration at the University of Delaware, with support from Delaware Coastal Programs, has compiled a web-based database of financial assistance programs that can support Delaware’s local governments with the implementation of climate change adaptation and resilient community development. Financial assistance programs are featured, rather than technical and planning assistance, that support costly adaptation activities such as infrastructure improvements and retrofitting, habitat restoration, and land acquisition.

The database lists resources in the following categories:

  • disaster preparedness
  • disaster recovery
  • education
  • emergency aid
  • energy conservation
  • habitat restoration
  • infrastructure upgrades
  • planning
  • property acquisition/ easements
  • renewable energy
  • species protection
  • storm-proofing retrofits
  • stormwater management
  • vulnerability assessment
  • wetland protection

Programs can also be filtered by four categories:

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