While grants-in-aid funding is up slightly over last year’s initial proposal, Sheila Bravo, president and CEO of the Delaware Alliance for Nonprofit Advancement, a state industry association for nonprofits, said she expected to lobby the legislature for additional support considering the strong state financial position.

“Our hope is that, with the positive revenue, there would be a consideration to increase grant-in-aid funding, particularly because of the wage increases that not only are getting mandated by minimum wage, but are also the realities of trying to hire people right now,” she told DBT. “So nonprofits are experiencing higher costs in order to remain competitive, and they’re also probably also paying more in their staffing line so that they can retain employees.”
