What is a Portal?
A portal is a one-stop shop filled with information and application choices. The Delaware.gov Web Portal was constructed to be the primary gateway to information and services provided by the State of Delaware. It was designed to be intuitive and easy to use, regardless of a visitor's knowledge of the structure of state government. In addition, the Portal is constantly being revised to better reflect new information and services provided by different state entities, as well as feedback from Portal visitors. If you have comments or suggestions on how to improve the Delaware.gov Portal, please e-mail the Government Information Center (GIC).
Specific features of the Portal
- Residents, businesses, visitors, state employees, and other governments can navigate the information and services provided by the State based on what they are seeking, not based on the agency or office that provides it.
- People are linked to the correct information or application, even if they don't know which government agency is involved in providing it.
- The Portal includes a powerful search engine for Delaware agency and partner sites.

The log cabin originated in Finland. Finnish settlers arrived in Delaware in the mid-1600s and brought with them plans for the log cabin, one of the enduring symbols of the American pioneer. One of the cabins has been preserved and is on display at the Delaware Agricultural Museum in Dover.
