The Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) announces its 19th year of funding to support municipal road projects that improve water quality and result in maintenance cost savings. The grant funds are provided by VTrans and the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources. The Vermont Better Roads Program’s goal is to promote the use of erosion control and maintenance techniques that save money while protecting and enhancing Vermont’s lakes and streams. Funds, subject to availability, will be distributed as grants to municipalities to address town erosion problems.


Program Changes for FY17. Additional funding is anticipated from the Transportation Bill through Act 40 and from the Clean Water Fund through Act 64. This year’s grant application features additional categories to reflect this additional money as well as increased grant amounts. With these changes, the Better Backroads Program has been renamed the Better Roads Program to reflect the inclusion of paved roads into the program for the first time.
