COVID-19 Relief and Recovery
Capital Investment Grant Program
This program supports capital investment projects that will assist Vermont's economic recovery effort. Funding is intended for transformational projects that create opportunity to retain existing businesses, attract more businesses, create jobs and strengthen communities by encouraging capital investments and economic growth.
Tourism and Economic Recovery Marketing Grant Program
The Tourism and Economic Recovery Marketing Grants are intended to enable local, regional, or statewide organizations to implement campaigns and initiatives that increase consumer spending, support local businesses, and advance community recovery efforts to support businesses in Vermont that have suffered economic harm due to the COVID-19 public health emergency.
New Health Insurance Offerings
One of the most valuable benefits that our Chamber offers our members is access to voluntary employee dental and vision insurance. These rates are extremely competitive in the Vermont marketplace (see 2022 premiums below) and are an ideal solution insurance coverage for small business owners and their employees. I encourage all our business to review and consider these options. These rates are only available for businesses that are members in good standing of a local Chamber of Commerce in Vermont, and who are actively in business.

Childcare In the Upper Valley: Challenges, Successes, and the Way Forward
Upper Valley employers and families both name access to high-quality, affordable childcare as one of the key barriers to prosperity in our region, especially for low- and moderate-income families. How can we increase childcare access and affordability in the Upper Valley so our families and workplaces can thrive?
That topic will be explored in depth in a free, public, two-part virtual symposium for employers, policymakers, providers, parents, and others.
Hosted by Vital Communities in partnership with the Corporate Council, Municipal Leaders, the Early Care and Education Association of the Upper Valley, Dartmouth-Hitchcock, and the Couch Family Foundation.
