Tear Sheet requested.

The Brattleboro Development Credit Corporation (BDCC) received a Community Development Block Grant for Disaster Relief (CDBG-DR) from the State of Vermont for a grant under the Vermont Community Development Program. A public hearing will be held at Brattleboro Development Credit Corporation, 76 Cotton Mill Hill, Brattleboro, VT 05301 on September 20, 2016 at 9:00 a.m. to obtain the views of citizens on community development, to furnish information concerning the range of community development activities that have been undertaken under this program, and to give affected citizens the opportunity to examine a statement of the use of these funds.

The State of Vermont, Agency of Commerce and Community Development funds received have been used to accomplish the following activities:

BDCC, in collaboration with the Springfield Regional Development Corporation (SRDC), shall use CDBG – DR funds to provide business assistance in the form of grants, and loans where appropriate, to meet businesses’ unmet needs related to the three 2011 disaster events that occurred in Vermont between April 23 and September 2, 2011.  The primary focus of the Business Assistance Program was for the benefit of businesses located in Windham and Windsor counties with the remainder located in other hard-hit areas of other Vermont counties.
