Create a transportation-friendly communityimg_4498-copy

Vermonters waste millions of hours of their time and gas to commute each year. As an Energy Committee, you can help your local residents reclaim their time, and their wallets, by engaging your community in a dialogue about efficient transportation.

The Go! Vermont Local Community Assistance Program

This program offers $500 grants to volunteer groups to promote, enhance and enable efficient transportation in their communities. You are encouraged to join more than 25 communities of all sizes, making a big impact in the lives of their neighbors.

Municipalities that have received the grant:
Bradford, Brattleboro, Calais, Hardwick, Montpelier, Sharon, South Burlington, South Hero, Springfield, Thetford and Weybridge.

Let’s Get Started!

To apply for a Community Assistance Program grant, simply submit a letter of intent on your town’s letterhead to share your initial plans. Go! Vermont reps will meet with your organization, discuss options, and provide materials and assistance. The grant funding will be awarded when you report back. Download the Letter of Introduction for more information.

The Vermont Transportation Efficiency Network (VTEN), is your go-to network of transportation professionals available to advise you of opportunities, experiences and success stories. Learn more.
