The CRA’s funding activities must align with the Delray Beach Community Redevelopment Plan. In response, the CRA has developed the A-GUIDE: Achieving Goals Using Impact Driven Evaluation, a grant program to assist organizations that engage in activities that further the CRA’s mission.  While the CRA is the primary entity responsible for implementing the Redevelopment Plan, several of the Overall Needs identified in the Plan can more effectively be addressed through partnerships with other organizations.  


Organizations meeting the following criteria are eligible to apply for Nonprofit Partner funding:

  • Mission consistent with the mission of the CRA
  • Classified as tax-exempt under IRS 501(c)(3)
  • In good standing with the State of Florida
  • Housed in City- or CRA-owned facilities located in the CRA district
  • Serves residents of the CRA district and/or visitors that come to the district to participate in funded programs, projects, and events
  • Demonstrated commitment by Board of Directors to purpose and accountability for CRA funds
