Town Planning Links

Other Links

  • Village Center Benefits – overview of the program benefits
  • Village Center Funding Directory – a list of grant opportunities to improve your village
  • Municipal Planning Grants – grant program to support planning in your village.  Good for town plans and zoning bylaws.  Also, would be good fit for a village center revitalization plan that that focuses on improving the physical and economic environment in the village. Or even a infrastructure study on a community wastewater (sewer) alternative system.  Happy to discuss more with you.
  • Historic Preservation Grants  – the most likely grant program to help the town hall, town offices, the church and other public/nonprofit buildings in the community.
  • Cultural Facilities Grants – grants to help enhance, create, or expand the capacity of an existing building to provide cultural activities for the public.
  • Northern Border Regional Commission Grants – grants to improve economic and community development projects. Possible could support community infrastructure projects (wastewater).
  • Village Center Tax Credits – tax credits to help improvements to commercial properties (and income-producing residential properties) in the designated village center.
  • Strong Communities Quarterly – SUBSCRIBE HERE – Quarterly newsletter from our department.  See Previous Editions HERE.
  • Better Connections Planning Grant Program – ACCD/VTrans planning grant program that we discussed for village revitalization/economic development plans.
