Programs

The Vermont Sustainable Jobs Fund collaborates with our partners and funders to provide programs that accelerate economic development in agriculture and food system, forest product, waste management, renewable energy, and environmental technology sectors.

We coordinate the implementation of the Farm to Plate Investment Program to increase economic development and jobs in the farm and food sector and improve access to healthy local food for all Vermonters.

We manage the Vermont Forest Products Program to create and retain quality jobs and open additional markets for locally produced wood products.

Our collaboration with the Vermont Council on Rural Development to implement the Vermont Climate Economy Initiative will boost economic development, create jobs, and attract youth and creative entrepreneurs to the state.

We recently concluded our work on the Vermont Bioenergy Initiative, which we began in 2005, to foster the development of small-scale biofuel industries in Vermont as a replacement for fossil fuel based energy.
