Open and Upcoming Funding Opportunities

VLCT posts an organized and robust list of grants from the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA aka Bipartisan Infrastructure Law), Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), and existing Federal and State programs on its Federal Funding Assistance Program webpage. On it you will find open and upcoming funding opportunities and the Vermont Federal Funding Guidebook. Open opportunities are updated as new funding announcements are released. Upcoming opportunities are updated monthly.

VLCT PACIF members can apply for PACIF Grants and John Lawe Scholarships.

Vermont municipal officials, employees, and their children who intend to work in Vermont local government can apply for the annual VLCT Municipal Service Scholarship.

Funding Database

Our partners at Chittenden Country Regional Planning Commission (CCRPC) have done an excellent job of compiling a comprehensive database of funding sources that are available to municipalities and local projects.  We thank them for doing this work and allowing VLCT to post a link to their page on our website here: CCRPC Funding Database.
