Delaware congressional delegation hosts grant fair and workshop

Delawareans have the opportunity today to learn more about the process of seeking grant opportunities at a workshop in Dover.

Senators Chris Coons and Tom Carper and Congressman John Carney are hosting the Grant Fair and Workshop from 9:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. at Delaware State University’s MLK Student Center.  “This event will give grant seekers an opportunity to ask questions and get answers to help them with the grant application process,” Carper said.  Coons said elected officials regularly get calls about federal grant opportunities.  “Researching, writing and applying for grants can be a daunting process and we want to do all we can to make the system easier and more accessible for small business owners, entrepreneurs and non-profits,” Coons added.  Participants in the event include the Environmental Protection Agency, Boeing, Delaware Community Foundation, PSEG, and various agencies and financial instutitons.  For additional information send an e-mail to or call the delegation’s Delaware offices.
