This is a collection of questions and answers about the 40101(d) Grid Resiliency Grants.
Please see the Project Metrics document for the rubric by which the Advisory Committee will be ruling proposals. The initial submission may be a concept paper to reduce the administrative burden of applying. However, the Advisory Committee may come back to ask further questions at any time in order to verify if all criteria are met or there are any outstanding data points.
No, there is no required minimum number of projects that may be ongoing. The Advisory Committee will only recommend awarding proposals that meet the standards of Delaware’s Goals, Objectives, and Metrics. There may be fewer than four projects or even leftover funds if proposals do not meet the criteria. If that occurs, funds will be rolled over into the next award cycle.
The winning applicants will be paid by direct subgrants, rather than reimbursements to reduce administrative burden. It should be noted that the State is provided the federal grant funding in yearly installments. Therefore, if an entity is applying for a five-year project, they will receive their subgrant as a share of the yearly installments until they have been subgranted in full.
