CVEDC is one of twelve non-profit regional development corporations in the State of Vermont. We were organized in 1976 to provide impetus for the region’s economic development. We have an Executive Director and a Director of Development. We have a 29 member volunteer Board of Directors comprised of local business owners, State representatives, lenders and municipal officials. Our office is co-located with the Vt Small Business Development Center Advisor in Montpelier. Our funding primarily comes from the State of Vermont, our municipalities and dues paying members of CVEDC.
Our corporation’s mission is to attract and retain good wage paying jobs for the citizens of our region.
CVEDC covers 23 towns in Washington & Orange Counties in Vermont: Barre City, Barre Town, Berlin, Cabot, Calais, Duxbury, East Montpelier, Fayston, Marshfield, Middlesex, Montpelier, Moretown, Northfield, Plainfield, Roxbury, Waitsfield, Warren, Waterbury, Woodbury, and Worcester and 3 towns in Orange: Washington, Williamstown and Orange.
