Having projects included in the CEDS indicates that your project is aligned with regional goals -- which bolsters funding applications and can improve visibility with potential funders who may be looking for opportunities in specific areas. Projects can be … - Physical improvements to facilities and infrastructure - Community programs, from summer camps to workforce initiatives - In any stage, from planning to implementation - Previously submitted (updates are valued, even if the project is already on the CEDS list) ​Projects must be submitted before September 8, 2023.

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 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.  ​
