Vital Communities is pleased to announce mini-grants for 2019 Flavors of the Valley vendors!

These grants will help your farm, food business, or restaurant defray the costs of vending at Flavors of the Valley on April 7 at Hartford High School.

Any vendor that is a farm, food business, or restaurant that is eligible to vend at Flavors of the Valley is eligible to apply for funds. The maximum mini-grant award is $200.

Applicants must complete the simple on-line application form by February 17, or print the (pdf) application form and return to Vital Communities. Applications received by February 17 will get first consideration, and thereafter applications will be considered on a rolling basis. Mini-grant applications will not be considered unless a complete vendor application and vendor fee has also been received by February 17.

Grant funds may be used to offset the cost of vendor registration, food sample costs, and/or the cost of staffing the event. A simple budget for use of the funds is required in the application.

We are excited to offer these mini-grants and welcome your questions. Please contact Beth Roy with any questions: Beth@VitalCommunities.org, 802.291.9100 x105.
