Business & Financial Information
The Vermont Agency of Commerce and Community Development hosted a series of webinars to help explain the Vermont Economic Recovery Package and how it will support various sectors throughout the economy.
Chamber Cash Program
The JPACC/ToV has implemented a “chamber cash” program. Each day while on quarantine, the chamber chooses a “winner” from our 1400 current membership list. We call and offer a $50.00 gift certificate to any food establishment of their choice.
Karen then calls the business and pays for the gift certificate with the ToV credit card. The response has been overwhelming! Restaurant and food establishments have been so appreciative and gracious.

Equity Share Program
The chamber has applied for a USDA-RBDG grant for Equity Share and Video Marketing Initiative. These efforts will certainly assist area business in promotions and provide more reasonable rates for products and benefits to excel/reboot area businesses and marketing in each community.
Hopefully, these funds will be allocated to the ToV in early July.
Summer Promotions & Deals
Please contact the chamber if you would like to collaborate with other businesses to offer a “Deal or Package.”
We will assist in the gathering of the offerings and help market them on Facebook and topofvt.com.
