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 the online application below. County Council will receive a copy of the application for their consideration to place on a future Council agenda.

If you are having trouble filling out the form below, please fill out the hard copy located here and mail it to the address on the form.

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