Healthy Communities Delaware (HCD)

Grants to Delaware community groups and nonprofit organizations to enhance the quality of life for residents in eligible regions. Applicants must submit a letter of intent prior to submitting a full proposal. Focus areas include housing, education, environment, transportation, job creation, financial health, and healthy food access, community vitality and safety. Eligible applicants must primarily serve at least one of the geographic areas of priority within New Castle, Kent, and Sussex counties.
The goal of this initiative is to improve health and well-being in Delaware communities through alignment, investment and impact. It is intended to create healthier neighborhoods where residents live, work, learn and play, through community-based collaborations on community-identified priorities for change.
HCD seeks to engage non-traditional and multi-sector partners in multi-year collaborations to address place-based needs. This approach will support existing and foster new community-level collaborations.
Applications from a community must demonstrate either (1) current collaboration among residents and organizations working within a community (geographic area), or (2) a plan to bring together residents and community-based organizations where that work has not yet been done. Preference will be given to applications using best-practice or evidence-based strategies. Increasing equity is a foundational goal of this effort, and should be at the core of the proposed work.
Collaboration and Funding Tracks: Applicants should indicate interest in applying to one or more of three collaboration and funding tracks: (1) Pre-planning; (2) Planning; (3) Ready-to-Go.

For the first 14-month funding period, up to a total of $750,000 will be available from Healthy Communities Delaware. The HCD funding will be available through an equitable-distribution model based on health risk score and population in the identified geographic areas: $460,979 will be available for New Castle County; $111,686 for Kent County; $177,335 for Sussex County.
The initially-proposed scope of work from a community must be completed within 14 months of funding (May 2020 – June 2021). At the same time, this is a long-term partnership—applicants will have the opportunity to apply regularly for additional funding for this or other projects identified in a new or existing community plan.
