The entire process takes less than five minutes and helps ensure Delaware residents receive proper funding from the federal government for a range of services like highway projects, social services, representation in Congress and more.

Keep social distancing in practice while visiting County Parks
While most county residents are being asked to work from home and a number of public spaces have been ordered to close, New Castle County's parks remain open to visitors. We encourage visitors to maintain social distancing practices while visiting parks. Basketball and tennis courts as well as playground equipment will be closed until further notice as a safety precaution. However, hiking or biking in parks like Middle Run Valley is a great way to maintain space and get exercise. To see what Middle Run Valley has to offer, CLICK HERE.
