$500,000 Awarded to Agricultural Fairs
The Vermont State Legislature appropriated Coronavirus Relief Funds in Act 138 for the purpose of awarding grants to Vermont’s agricultural fairs that have suffered lost revenues or expenses caused by the COVID-19 public health emergency. The Vermont Agency of Agriculture, Food & Markets (VAAFM) awarded $500,000 to twelve agricultural fairs that experienced income loss, additional expenses, and event disruption in 2020. The Agricultural Fairs Application closed on August 20, 2020.
