State Program Description

Administration
The state of Delaware has two FIMR teams: the Kent/Sussex Counties (K/S) team and the New Castle County (NCC) team.

The typical FIMR operates as a two tiered system, with a Community Review Team (CRT) and a separate Community Action Team (CAT). The CAT is often charged with taking the recommendations of the CRT and putting them into action. Does your FIMR use a two tiered system with a functioning CAT?
