The Local Support and Community Action Team

a working site for sharing strategies, and news in the Vermont community recovery

Vermont communities are faced with an unprecedented challenge. The coronavirus pandemic has halted in-person municipal operations, limited or even shuttered business operations, and put significant economic strain on individuals and families across the state. Communities are grappling today with how to ensure that immediate needs are met while also keeping an eye to the future to minimize negative impacts on their businesses, municipal budgets, town operations, and, the health, vitality, and well-being of their community.

The Local Support and Community Action Team - a committee of Vermont Governor Scott's Economic Mitigation & Recovery Task Force - was formed to develop strategies to speed long-term community recovery. This working site shares stand-out examples of community recovery strategies and other news around Vermont community solutions and local action.
