The Restart Vermont Technical Assistance Program
When COVID-19 hit, to relieve pressure on businesses and organizations in Vermont, the RDCs of Vermont launched the Restart Vermont Technical Assistance Program (ReVTA). This original program was designed to deliver critically important technical assistance to hundreds of businesses and organizations trying to adapt to new practices, retrofit their physical spaces, and access new technology.

Who did ReVTA support?
We will be in a better position in 2021 than pre-pandemic... the TA program helped me do things I simply could not do on my own... a very successful program and a good use of State funds. I encourage its return, because I think it can help a lot of people.

Working as a vendor with the ReVTA program was an amazing experience and outcome for Eternity. The navigators were friendly and helpful every step of the way. While our business was already seeing growth due to the pandemic, this allowed us to work with many existing and several new clients that [would otherwise] not have that extra budget to engage with us. And this enabled us to fast-track those projects. Many of the projects have also now turned into recurring revenue streams past the completed project, so it will continue to bear fruit for the future!
