Vermont Agency of Commerce and Community Development (ACCD), Department of Housing and Community Development
Grants starting at $50,000 to Vermont government agencies and municipalities (with the exception of Burlington) for housing, economic development, and public facilities and services. Applicants must hold a public meeting prior to applying. Funding is intended to support projects that promote economic development or housing that will directly benefit individuals of low- and moderate income, will eliminate slums or blight, or will address a community’s urgent need.
If an applicant seeks VCDP funding to remediate and reuse a brownfield site(s), VCDP funds will only be available for sites where there is a clear commitment to the reoccupation and reuse of the subject property, and the project is not eligible or appropriate for the Brownfields Revolving Loan Fund or any other federal or state brownfield funds.
Each proposed VCDP activity must meet at least one state objective:
- Housing: Conserve, expand, and/or improve housing.
- Economic Development: Create and retain jobs.
- Public Facilities: Improve public facilities in support of housing or economic development activities, or where there is a threat to the public health and safety.
- Public services: Provide services that support job creation and/or retention, support family self-sufficiency, support housing, or assist persons with special needs.
Slums and Blight: Elimination of a slum or a blighted condition on a spot or area basis is a means to provide benefit under the Federal Act. However, only limited funds are available due to statutory requirements dictating the amount of funds that must meet the low- and moderate-income national objective.
Urgent Need: Meet a condition that recently became an urgent need. Addressing a community’s urgent need may provide benefit under the Federal Act. However, only limited funds are available due to statutory requirements dictating the amount of funds that must meet the low- and moderate-income national objective.
Each project must result in benefits that address the National Objectives established under the Federal Act. For details regarding these objectives and benefits, see:
