BTV Counts! Take the Census 2020

The City started the BTV Counts initiative to create awareness of why it is more important than ever to make sure all residents count in the 2020 Census. See more info above.  


Community Mask Initiative

The City launched a community effort in March to produce and distribute high-quality masks to any business or Burlingtonian who wants one. The availability of protective supplies, masks included, has been one of the major issues of the COVID-19 crisis. Click above to read more.


Food Relief Program

The Small Business and Employer Support Team started a COVID-19 Food Relief Pilot Program in March to supplement outstanding programs such as Feeding Chittenden and Meals on Wheels that are seeing surges in demand. The program connects local markets, restaurants and community organizations together to provide food for local non-profits in need. Click above to read more and see updates.


Plant for the People

Plant for the People is a new City initiative that leverages the talent of the community to help address local food insecurity, improve the foundation of our local food system, and make our community even more resilient. The initiative creates an opportunity to use or expand your own garden to help fellow residents, while also getting outside and enjoying all the physical and mental benefits of gardening.
