Vermont Relocation Grants Now Available

Relocation Grants Available

Vermont’s relocation grant application portal is now open to eligible applicants who relocated to Vermont after July 1, 2021. 

This relocation program aims to grow the workforce as well as provide support to employers who are struggling to fill vacancies, either due to the low unemployment rates or a disconnect between job requirements and candidate qualifications.

Eligible applicants are those who fill vacancies in occupations identified with the most openings. The program offers reimbursement grants for eligible expenses, up to $7,500, to workers in certain occupations who move to Vermont and fill an opening with a Vermont employer.
