Important Grant Notice from Sara Coffey

I wanted to be sure that farming families in Vernon knew about this program and grant opportunity.This year the the legislature raised the budget for the Vermont Working Lands Enterprise Initiative (WLEI) and next year the program will allocate more than $1.5 million, including one-time funding for the dairy sector. The next grant opportunity for the WLEI will open in the fall with business applications due November 3, 2019.

The program was created by the Legislature in 2012 to strengthen and grow the economies, cultures, and communities of Vermont’s working landscape through technical and financial assistance to help Working Lands businesses innovate and grow. The program has invested more than $5.3 million in 184 projects spread across every county.
