Mar 9 - Positioning Your Project For Success: The Path From Idea to Successful Grant Funding This workshop is focused on project development and the pursuit of funding for community development projects. Community development projects can be complicated, and we want to help those in the developing stages make progress towards determining if a project is viable and how to pursue funding, particularly with the potential availability of some COVID-related funding. A panel of presenters will provide advice on what makes a good fundable project, and how to take some of the initial steps towards success.

Mar 23 - Answering the Challenge of Democracy: Building Unity, Connection, and Engagement for a Stronger Future

Democratic governance is only as strong as the public participation it is built upon.

Each of us has a role to play to ensure that democracy in Vermont functions well and serves the needs of all Vermonters.

Join the Vermont Council on Rural Development for a panel presentation and facilitated discussion on the future of our democracy.
