Governor John Carney and Lt. Governor Hall-Long on Thursday announced the Community Investment Recovery Fund, which will provide nonprofits with one-time funding to support major capital projects in Delaware communities hard hit by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Community Investment Recovery Fund is funded with $100 million from the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA). ARPA was championed in Congress by members of Delaware’s congressional delegation — Sens. Tom Carper and Chris Coons, and Rep. Lisa Blunt Rochester — and signed into law by President Joe Biden on March 11.
“The American Rescue Plan is about rebuilding from the COVID-19 pandemic and coming out of this crisis stronger than before. That’s exactly what this Community Investment Recovery Fund will help us do,” said Governor Carney. “This Recovery Fund will help support community centers and other nonprofits that are seeking to rebuild and strengthen the communities they serve every day. I want to thank President Biden and members of Delaware’s congressional delegation for making these resources available.”
The Community Investment Recovery Fund announced on Thursday will provide support for major nonprofit capital projects statewide.
