Tools for Communities
We support energy committees in their efforts to build a clean energy future. We train regional planners and real estate professionals about regulations and non-regulatory tools that keep forests and wildlife habitat intact. We conduct outreach to private dam owners to assist them in removing dams to promote healthy waterways. We grant funds to communities working on smart growth projects. And more.

Across the state, we keep Vermonters informed about the environmental issues that affect them most, and empower them to speak up when the voice of concerned citizens is needed to make a difference.
