Grants ranging from $3,000 to $100,000 will be awarded later this winter by Vermont’s Working Lands Enterprise Board from a $986,5000 fund designed to fuel the Green Mountain State’s economy and build its local food system while maintaining its open lands and natural vistas.
VERGENNES — A smaller-than-expected annual federal grant award has left the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Vergennes scrambling in the middle of its fiscal year and will probably mean closing the club’s center for younger members.
Club executive director Mike Reiderer said when he and the organization’s board sat down and came up with this year’s budget, they had counted upon the same roughly $100,000 bequest from a federal program that had been awarded in the past two years.
