The Delaware Resilience Fund is now accepting applications.
The grant program was created to assist homeowners and communities that suffered damage from the severe weather that struck Delaware on August 4th and 7th.
The program includes two categories: direct assistance to qualifying individuals; and support to volunteer groups, non-profits, and religious organizations assisting with recovery efforts.
- Direct Assistance to Qualifying Individuals: Individuals may qualify for direct assistance through the Milford Housing Development Corporation (MHDC) for services such as emergency home repair, insurance deductible assistance, and property clean-up to assist in making it usable. Qualification will be based on MHDC and income limit guidelines. To apply for assistance through the Delaware Resilience Fund call the MHDC at 1 (844) 413-0038.
- Support to Volunteer Groups, Non-Profits, and Religious Organizations Assisting Recovery Efforts: Includes providing funding to community groups that are assisting with immediate relief (shelter and short-term housing, basic necessities, and clean-up and debris removal) and long-term recovery (such as case management, mental health/counseling, and rebuilding/construction).
