Grant Information

Vermont Technical College was awarded a Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) Grant in the amount of $3.4 million. Implemented through the US Department of Labor, TAACCCT provides eligible institutions of higher education with funds to expand and improve their ability to deliver education and career training programs. This grant supports the creation of the Institute for Applied Agriculture and Food Systems at Vermont Tech, which ultimately aims to help serve the education and training needs of state industries that support agriculture, food production, waste disposal and energy production.

Institute for Applied Agriculture and Food Systems Mission Statement

Rooted in the values that all food and fiber production must be science-based and sustainably support the environment over the long term through a full-cycle food system, the Institute provides hands-on learning to students of all ages and backgrounds. Through short, focused courses built around best practices, students are encouraged to develop the skills, knowledge and competency to make an immediate difference as agricultural or food system employees, or as entrepreneurs in those fields.
