Vermont Community Action Agencies helped thousands of individuals and families improve their economic stability. During 2020, with the help of the Vermont Legislature, we stemmed the tide of disintegrating micro-businesses, provided direct personal business counseling, offered educational workshops and helped Vermonters increase their financial capacity and hold on to and add to their savings accounts. We provided essential assistance with tax preparation and strategies in building a stronger future.Find your local agency
