VERMONT MAIN STREET FLOOD RECOVERY FUND
Supporting Vermont's Small Businesses
The Vermont Main Street Flood Recovery Fund is raising money to provide grants to Vermont's small business owners impacted by July 10th's flooding. These Vermonters are vital to our communities and we will do all we can to support them through this crisis. The Fund will provide grants in the range of $2,500-$10,000 to cover costs such as equipment replacement, supplies and help with clean-up. This will help bridge need until further support is available.
Partnering with Capstone Community Action, our board will ensure your donations are tax-deductible and are being distributed responsibly.
