Diversification Assistance for Vermont’s Defense Businesses The VT Department of Economic Development has recently been awarded a grant from the U.S. Department of Defense’s (‘DOD’) Office of Economic Adjustment to help Vermont businesses that have been impacted by DOD spending reductions over the last few years. Businesses in which the Department of Defense was the ultimate recipient of products and services representing at least 10% of the company’s sales in one of the last five (5) years qualify for assistance under the grant. If your business falls under one which has been impacted as a result of these reductions and you are interested in receiving further information on the grant (click here for one page overview), plan to attend one of the following sessions (click on each date for further information):
