The Delaware County Commissioners today announced the seven recipients of a second and final found of their 2020 Community Enhancement Grants, totaling $238,729.32.

The county’s existing CEG program normally has distributed about $160,000 each year since its inception in 2014. The monies have gone to local nonprofit organizations to fund specific capital projects, but, with the 2020 funds, the Commissioners decided to shift the program’s focus to reimbursing organizations for operating losses due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In December, the Commissioners awarded $608,526 to 16 organizations in its first round of awards
