American Rescue Plan/Federal Funds Listening Tour Continues

Legislative leaders continue to seek input from Vermonters to inform their decisions on how the state of Vermont should spend the unallocated federal funds from the American Rescue Plan (ARPA). Thanks to federal stimulus funds, a surge in state revenues, and more potential federal funds on the way, the Vermont Legislature is positioned to make large one-time investments in Vermont's pandemic recovery and to address critical infrastructure needs. Public input will help shape the decisions about how to allocate those funds.

The “Investing in Vermont’s Future Community” conversations are taking place regionally, and an online questionnaire has been created to include voices not typically heard in the legislative process. All the events are virtual. The first events took place last week. The next one is set for Oct. 2, with others scheduled throughout the month.

Vermont Community Action Plan Community Forums

The Vermont Community Action Partnership is hosting a series of state-wide community forums to hear from low- and moderate-income Vermonters about issues of environmental justice. 

Beginning in October, these forums are an opportunity to share and learn from personal stories about the impact of climate change and to learn about the work of Vermont Climate Council and the drafting of the Climate Action Plan.
