Grants to Kent County, Delaware nonprofits and agencies for collaborative programs in the areas of hunger, homelessness, health care, and crisis funding for basic needs. Proposals that address emergency assistance for basic needs don't need to be collaborative.

Collaboration can be defined as:
- A process by which organizations or agencies conduct formal joint activities with exchange of information and resources to accomplish a shared purpose
- An initiative which offers the possibility for maximizing potential success that otherwise would be unattainable by any single entity
- An arrangement which provides shared decision-making, addresses common interest issues, and reduces duplication of costs or effort


Single and multi-year grants will be considered.
