Sens. Carper & Kaufman Detail $625 Million In Recovery Funding For Delaware
Senators release "Guide to Funds" outlining how Delawareans can apply for federal funds
NEWARK, Del. – At a press conference this morning, and in a comprehensive 45-page guide on their websites, Sens. Tom Carper and Ted Kaufman (both D-Del.) showed how Delaware has and will continue to benefit from new federal dollars coming into the state from the economic recovery package.
To date, the Obama-Biden Administration and Sens. Carper and Kaufman have announced more than $625 million from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) for Delaware through a mix of formula funding, discretionary awards and tax credits.
New federal assistance helps Delawareans with everything from health care and veteran services to education and clean energy alternatives. And, more money is already showing up in paychecks for 95 percent of Delaware families who qualified for a federal income tax cut.
Today, the two U.S. senators released a comprehensive “Guide to Funds,” which is designed to lay out what funds are available to communities, organizations, individuals and businesses across Delaware, and how best to compete for the maximum federal dollars.
The guide includes funding options by subjects, such as education or energy, and also includes the 11 most notable federal competitive grant opportunities under which Delawareans can directly compete.
Hard copies of this comprehensive guide are available from the two senators’ state and Washington offices, and an electronic version is posted on their websites, carper.senate.gov and kaufman.senate.gov.
