Rutland Economic Development Corporation is accepting project submissions to develop a list of priority projects within Rutland County that are currently lacking necessary funds to complete.
These regional projects will be evaluated by a committee of business and nonprofit leaders and shared with the Vermont Agency of Commerce and Community Development (ACCD) to assist in identifying projects that support Vermont business expansion and retention, encourage job creation and workforce development, increase broadband access, and provide opportunities for new economic development practices. This information will provide ACCD with a list of existing efforts to be considered for local, state, and federal resources. The submission period is open from June 11, 2020, through June 19, 2020.
Project submissions should include the project name, the business, organization, or agency implementing the project, the type of project, a brief project description, the project purpose and benefits, a project timeline, the project principal experience, the support and regional need, project cost and funding (including gaps in funding), and job creation resulting from the project.
Any private or public business or nonprofit or a consortium of entities may submit a project for consideration. Applications must be submitted from the business(es) or organization(s) implementing the project.
The Rutland Region Priority Project of Rutland Economic Development Corporation is made possible in part by a subgrant from the Northern Border Regional Commission through the Vermont Agency of Commerce and Community Development.
Proposals are due no later than June 19 at 5 p.m. Proposals can be sent to Rutland Economic Development Corporation, 67 Merchants Row Suite 104, Rutland, VT 05701 or submitted through the online form at rutlandeconomy.com/priority-projects.
