Regional Development Corporations

The Regional Development Corporations (RDCs), with support from the Agency of Commerce and Community Development, are offering a new program to help Vermont businesses get the help they need.  The Small Business Assistance Technical Exchange (SBATE) can help small to medium-sized businesses with service projects like websites, photography, and legal support. The portal to apply opens November 6, 2023.

Find your Regional Development Corporations from the list below.

The Department of Economic Development provides administrative funding to our twelve Regional Development Corporations (RDCs) serving every geographic region of the state. These organizations serve as “satellites” of the Department, and they provide local knowledge and facilitate assistance in their communities. View RDC map coverage. They are as follows:
