Grants of up to $30,000 to Delaware nonprofit organizations and schools for economic and financial literacy programs serving adults and youth. Proposals will be evaluated on their potential to improve the financial literacy of Delaware residents. Particular interest is given to preventive, forward-thinking, and proactive programs.
Applications for programs and services designed to reach populations or geographic regions within the State that have had limited access to financial literacy programs are encouraged.
Grants will be awarded to schools or other organizations for:
1. K-12 Financial Literacy Programs - Programs that provide financial and economic literacy skills for students in grades K-12.
2. Adult Financial Literacy Programs - Programs that provide financial and economic literacy skills for adults.
3. Targeted Campaigns - Education is the first line of defense against fraud and deception. Education can help individuals make well-informed decisions before they spend their money. The targeted campaign application, which may include proposed media campaigns and forums, should have a goal of providing financial literacy for residents facing decisions on debt, with special emphasis on reaching out to the military, seniors and minority communities.
