Many people and communities in our state have faced tremendous devastation from the storms and floods we’ve seen this week. Recovery efforts with state and federal resources are now building up to full swing, and it has been heartening to see individuals and communities come together to help those who have been the most affected.
Here is a list of resources for those who are looking for ways to help or looking for help themselves. Please share this list widely by forwarding this email or sharing the resources page on my website.
NOFA VT Farmer Emergency Fund: Financially helping farmers who lost everything in floodwaters
Vermont Main Street Flood Recovery Fund: Filling the financial gap to help Vermont’s small businesses to get open quickly
American Red Cross of Northern New England: Helping displaced individuals and families in affected communities
Vermont Community Foundation Flood Response & Recovery Fund: Coordinating statewide philanthropic efforts for individuals and communities
Vermont Foodbank: Providing food for those who have been affected by the floodwaters
Regional funds supporting flood victims
If you know of other resources that we can add to this list, you can respond to this email and we will update the list on our website. We plan to find and add resources for those with mental health circumstances that have been created or exacerbated by this devastation as well. My thoughts are with those who have been affected by the storms. Stay safe, and please help out your fellow Vermonters if you have the means to.
Lt. Governor David Zuckerman
