The Vermont Council on Rural Development’s (VCRD) Climate Economy Resilient Communities Program helps communities build and implement priority actions that increase economic vitality and affordability in a time of climate change. In 2023, VCRD worked with towns in the White River Valley Region to explore putting in place a regional coordinator initially modeled after the existing 7-town Intermunicipal Regional Energy Coordinator housed under Two Rivers-Ottauquechee Regional Commission.
