The Governor’s requests for adjustments to the current year funding were discussed. The Vermont Chamber testified in support of increases in programs that support growing Vermont’s workforce and workforce housing. Those include Vermont State College funding to the Critical Occupations Program Scholarship, the Welcome Home Scholarship, and a CTE pilot program as well as ARPA funds going to housing programs for VHCB, VHIP, a rental risk pool, and a Missing Middle Home Ownership Development Pilot Program.
