$5.6 million in grants is set to revitalize the downtown areas in Dover, Seaford and Wilmington.
There are thirteen projects in all from a state grant for areas designated as Downtown Development Districts earlier this year.
The Wilmington News Journal reports that these include commercial and mixed use as well as residential developments.
Officials hope that the state funds will generate as much as $114 million in private money.
The grants will provide up to 20 percent of construction costs for those projects that have already been completed.
