Friday night storm damage in Greenville still showed on Sunday.
Double whammy. This Greenville home got hit by two trees in the Aug. 7 tornado.

The Delaware Emergency Management Agency announced Thursday that the Delaware Resilience Fund is now accepting applications. 

The fund was created to assist families and communities devastated by tornadoes and other severe weather that occurred Aug. 4, when Tropical Storm Isaias came througn, spawning tornadoes, and Aug. 7, when a storm in north New Castle County spun off a tornado and straight-line winds that tore down thousands of old trees.

The program will offer direct assistance to qualifying individuals and also support to volunteer groups, non-profits, and religious organizations assisting with recovery efforts.

 

Individuals

People may qualify for direct assistance through the Milford Housing Development Corporation for services such as emergency home repair, insurance deductible assistance and property cleanup to assist in making it usable.

Qualifications will be based on income and the development corporation’s guidelines.  To apply, call 1-844-413-0038.

 

Groups

Funding will go to community groups that are assisting with immediate relief such as shelter and short-term housing, basic necessities, and cleanup and debris removal, and for long-term recovery such as case management, mental health/counseling, and rebuilding/construction. To apply for support, go to https://arcg.is/1fPbbi and questions may be directed to plan.dema@delaware.gov.

Applications are due by Sept. 4.  The initial award is anticipated to be announced on Sept. 14.
