We pushed for a significant relief package to help Vermont businesses through this closure and recovery period, and the package satisfies that request and includes:
- $310 million in immediate relief to help impacted Vermont businesses stay afloat
- A $90 million investment in economic recovery to aid in securing Vermont's future
- Emergency grants and loans to businesses that either closed, are primarily closed, or had significantly reduced revenue to help Vermonters survive the financial toll of the pandemic
Governor Scott's full proposed relief package is available to review. The package needs legislative approval before it can be implemented, and our four-person lobbying team will work to ensure legislators move quickly to advance the required legislation.
Our work at the Vermont Chamber continues. We are here for Vermont businesses during this period of hardship – as an ally, educator, and advocate.
Our staff is 100 percent committed to helping our state's businesses succeed now and into the future. We are available over Zoom, by phone, or by email to answer questions. Please reach out to connect with an expert Vermont Chamber staff member.
