The Vermont Council on Rural Development is a non-profit, federally supported, state rural development council that combines public and private resources to fund programs that improve the rural communities of Vermont, a largely rural state.[1] The organization was created in 1992.[1]

Recent initiatives

The organization coordinates two key initiatives around creating a green economy:[2] an initiative called "Vermont Climate Economy Initiative" designed around developing enterprises focused on responding to global warming;[3] and a "Climate Model Communities Program" coordinated with Efficiency Vermont to improve the sustainability of whole communities in Vermont.[4]

Other programs include a community leadership award program,[5] investment in working lands,[6] and regularly policy meetings and summits.[7][8]
