The annual Municipal Planning Grant (MPG) application period is open. These valuable community revitalization grants are distributed by the State of Vermont Agency of Commerce and Community Development in an annual competitive grant. "[T]he MPG program works to strengthen Vermont by funding local planning initiatives that support statewide planning goals. Since 1998, the MPG program has provided over $12 million to 234 cities and towns across Vermont to help breathe new life into communities, plan for future growth and development, and improve the quality of life."
