The Community Environmental Project Fund provides money to support the restoration of the environment in communities that were damaged by environmental pollution.
2019 Community Environmental Project Fund Grants
Applications are due by January 4, 2019.
Available Penalty Funds
The Community Environmental Project Fund was created by the Delaware General Assembly in 2004 (74 Del. Laws, c. 203). The legislation authorizes the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) to establish a grant fund by withholding 25% of funds collected as penalties for violations of environmental regulations. These funds are returned to the communities where the violations occurred as competitive grants to nonprofit organizations to support community environmental projects.
Eligible community environmental projects must mitigate pollution, enhance the environment, or create recreational opportunities.
