The Delaware Division of Historical and Cultural Affairs is partnering with the Delaware Alliance for Nonprofit Advancement to develop its new strategic plan for fiscal years 2022 through 2026. The plan will recognize and incorporate the issues, ideas and initiatives of Delaware’s history-, preservation- and cultural-communities including its audiences, institutions, educators and organizations.
