State of Vermont Grant 

The VT Department of Economic Development has recently been awarded a grant from the U.S. Department of Defense’s (DOD) Office of Economic Adjustment to help Vermont (OEA) businesses that have been impacted by DOD spending reductions over the last few years.

Permits Licensing and Taxes

Although there are a number of state regulations, regulations and licensing requirements established by state law are sometimes administered at the local level. The federal government also regulates businesses and certain professions.
