Human Service Grant Program

The Human Service Grant program provides grants to county-wide non-profit agencies for the purpose of enhancing health and human services which contribute to a safe, healthy and self-sufficient community. Funds provide grants that assist organizations with resources in support of programs or capital purchases.

The Sussex County Council has $225,000 available for FY 2019 for Human Service Grants. Please realize that we receive numerous applications for this program so the Council asks that your request for funding be reasonable, realistic, and within our budgetary constraints.

To be eligible for a grant, you must fill out an application and submit a copy of your current non-profit status from the IRS.

The deadline for filing grant requests is Friday, September 28, 2018. It is anticipated that the Sussex County Council will consider these requests in October and awards will be made during the month of November.

Please do not hesitate to contact Gina Jennings if you have additional questions.
