Vermont Bond Bank has announced its first annual Capital Plan Contest as well as the Vermont Capital Planning Forum. In sponsoring the contest, the Bond Bank seeks to recognize best practices in communities of all sizes while allowing all Vermonters to benefit from exemplary models of capital planning throughout the state.

Submissions may include all formats of capital plans used by communities and organizations. To be considered, complete a short questionnaire and email your capital plan to this address. Submissions are due by February 1, 2022.

Awards will be reviewed by a panel of statewide experts in infrastructure planning, including VHFA's Managing Director of Community Development, Seth Leonard. Awards will reflect the state’s diversity across communities, with enterprise or utility submissions also welcome. 

Winners will be featured in the Bond Bank’s future publications on capital planning. Additionally, winners will receive professional photography of a related project and special recognition at the Bond Bank’s upcoming capital planning forum, and all will receive technical assistance on capital plan implementation.
 
The award ceremony will take place at the virtual Vermont Capital Planning Forum on Thursday, April 7, 2022.
