CEDS DOCUMENTS

CEDS PROJECT SUBMISSIONS- Due November 30th, 2021

CEDS Projects submissions are due November 30th, 2021, to be reviewed in Spring 2022. Please use the links below to access forms to submit. 
This year's project submission deadline of November 30, 2021 is earlier than in previous years. This adjustment will better align the CEDS cycle with a series of state and federal funding initiatives, some of which emerged in response to the pandemic. These programs are remarkably well-attuned to the public and nonprofit development work that is integral to the CEDS Project Submission process. Going forward, synchronizing the CEDS timeline with these initiatives will help local organizations amplify their work and prepare for additional investments.
If you have any questions, please email slang@brattleborodevelopment.com

CEDS PROJECTS: THE WHAT​

The CEDS is a federally-approved action plan for growing the Southern Vermont economy with a regional public process. Each year the CEDS is updated with new and updated “CEDS Projects” submissions which highlight projects, programs, and activities that address Southern Vermont’s greatest needs and enhance the region’s competitiveness.

CEDS PROJECTS: THE WHY

CEDS Project submissions are reviewed and ranked on how each project will advance and impact the CEDS objectives, as well as readiness to begin, partners, and investments made. While the inclusion of a project in the CEDS does not guarantee future investment, it does indicate to federal, state, and philanthropic funders that the project is aligned with the region’s economic and community development goals. This annual process also ensures regional and statewide organizations have a clear understanding of southern Vermont projects in the works or underway.
