Annual Pass Assistance Program

What is the Assistance Program?

The Division of Parks and Recreation and the Department of Health and Social Services have teamed up to create opportunities for every person and family in Delaware to enjoy their state parks. A park entrance fee is charged daily from March 1 through November 30. If you currently receive assistance from a State Service Center, you may be eligible to purchase one annual state park pass for $10. This pass, which is placed on your vehicle’s windshield, allows the vehicle and up to six occupants unlimited entry to the parks during the fee season.*

Who Is Eligible?

Those receiving any of the following types of assistance are eligible for this program:

  • Public Assistance
  • General Assistance
  • Medicaid
  • Supplemental Social Security Income
  • SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program)
  • WIC
  • Child Care Assistance Program

What To Do?

Bring your completed, signed application, vehicle registration and driver's license to any state park office. Call (302) 739-9220, or visit any state park office for more information about this special program.
