The Joint Finance Committee voted unanimously Tuesday to allocate nearly $46 million to the Grant-In-Aid bill — $4.2 million more than was recommended by Gov. John Carney.

Members of the Delaware Alliance for Nonprofit Advancement were "jumping up and down in joy" at the news, said chief executive director Sheila Bravo.

"For some agencies, this is very significant funding," she said. "To hear unanimous support for reinstatement, this is something our members are going to be thrilled with."

If approved by the full General Assembly, the proposal would bring the total funding for nonprofits — including fire departments — back to the level in fiscal year 2016.
