The Federal Reserve Bank of Boston and its Vermont partners are now accepting applications for the Working Communities Challenge, a grant competition designed to support cross-sector teams working collaboratively to build strong, healthy economies and communities in Vermont.

The program will award a 4-5 month planning grant of $10,000-$15,000 to up to six cross-sector teams that each represent a group of rural towns, a region, or a small city in Vermont.
