BRATTLEBORO -- Funding is available this fall for projects in Vermont where a small grant can make a big difference. The Community Foundation’s Small and Inspiring grants program supports work across the state that helps connect people to their neighbors, their land, and their history in ways that strengthen the community. Past grants have supported projects such as an irrigation system used for refugee rice production in Chittenden County and repairs to reopen the Plainfield Town Hall/Opera House.

Non-profit organizations, schools, municipal entities, and groups with a fiscal sponsor are eligible to apply for grants from $500 to $2,500. Deadlines for applications are August 15, September 16, October 15, and November 15. Visit www.vermontcf.org to learn more.
