Non-Profit Grant Program

The Council Grant Program provides grants to non-profit agencies. These funds assist organizations with resources in support of programs, or capital purchases, that benefit Sussex County residents.

Each fiscal year, $175,000 is available for distribution. Please realize that we receive over 100 applications for this program per year; therefore, 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 a Council Grant application. County Council will receive a copy of the application for their consideration to place on a future Council agenda.

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