Southern Vermont Economy Project

The Southern Vermont Economy Project (SVEP) seek to stabilize, improve and expand the rural economic and workforce development network in Southern Vermont. The Brattleboro Development Credit Corporation (BDCC) applied for a USDA RCDI grant to facilitate this project. Over the next two years SVEP will connect and expand collaboration for economic and community development work in the Southern Vermont Economic Development Zone.

To grow a more resilient region the Southern Vermont Economy Project will:

  • Strengthen economic collaboration,
  • Improve access to economic & workforce development information, programs, services, technical assistance, best practices training and funding initiatives,
  • Bolster economic & workforce development services in Windham and Bennington Counties,
  • Improve the capacity of participant organizations to work individually and collectively on the Southern Vermont economy.
