Funding & Incentives

Grantee Guidance

Planning Rendering

For many years, annual funding has been provided to support municipal planning projects. This support, in the form of grants, has helped draft and update town plans and bylaws. A complete list of projects funded through the MPG Program between 1998 and 2018 is available here.

Applicant Guidance

All Municipal Planning Grant (MPG) applications must be submitted through the online grants management system. Grants are available to municipalities with a confirmed local planning process. Municipalities without a confirmed local planning process may only apply for funding to obtain confirmation.  The work documents below should be used to prepare the content of your application before you begin the online application process.

CD Board, Meetings & Awards

Vermont Community Development Board

Vermont has a Community Development (CD) Board, which in conjunction with the VCDP staff, review the applications. The CD Board is made up of nine members from around the state, who are appointed by the Governor. The CD Board makes VCDP grant award recommendations to the Secretary of the Agency of Commerce and Community Development (ACCD), who then makes the final award decisions on behalf of the Governor.

Grantee Guidance

Municipalities that successfully receive grant awards from the VCDP must meet the award conditions indicated in the award letter. Once all the award conditions have been met the municipality will then be offered a grant agreement by the Department. The municipality will then need to complete all their special conditions/documentation required within the grant agreement before they can begin to requisition funds. VCDP is a federal program with federal requirements that apply to all Grantees.
