Community Impact Grants

One of the ways the DCF is building opportunity and advancing equity for all in Delaware is through our Community Impact Grants. Annually, the DCF awards over $600,000 through its Community Impact Grants programs. Funding for these grants is provided Delaware Forever Fund, which consists of gifts made to the DCF for discretionary grantmaking.
