Leahy International Trade Grant
The Vermont Global Trade Partnership is fortunate, through the foresight and hard work of Senator Patrick Leahy, to be able to offer direct financial assistance in the form of small grants to Vermont businesses seeking to grow their export markets. These grants can assist with export compliance or offsetting the costs of attending a trade show in a new market as well as other opportunities for export market expansion.
The Vermont Global Trade Partnership periodically engages with Vermont businesses to attend certain international trade markets and trade shows. For more information on upcoming opportunities, contact us at 802-522-2540 or 802-272-0543.
