Help identify high impact strategies for promoting Vermont’s recovery

By: Leslie Black-Plumeau

The Local Support and Community Action Team of the State of Vermont Economic Mitigation and Recovery Task Force needs your help prioritizing high impact ideas and actions identified by diverse stakeholders for COVID-19 recovery.  The task force was established by Governor Scott to help mitigate the short-term economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and develop strategies for long-term business and community recovery. 

Please share your views in this quick survey on or before Tuesday, May 12th.

We also encourage you to forward this survey to your peers and network.  Coordination, connection and collective action to prioritize and implement Vermont’s best ideas are the keys to a swift recovery, achieved together.
