FY2019 Public Service RFP Award Recipients

real estate & housing

The following projects have been approved for funding as listed below.

All RFP applications were carefully reviewed, evaluated and rated by an advisory review committee and approved by Mayor Purzycki. While the Department of Real Estate and Housing would have liked to fund all the projects submitted, it was impossible to do so. Due to a delay in release of allocations amount from Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the grant amounts and units impacted by federal programs are estimated from FY2018 funding remaining flat. All proposed activities’ budgets will be proportionally increased or decreased from the estimated funding levels to match actual allocation amounts.

For questions, contact Alan J. Matas at (302) 576-3021 or ajmatas@WilmingtonDE.gov.
