Clean Water Fund Budget Process

The Clean Water Fund Board allocates Clean Water Fund dollars each year following a budget process with multiple opportunities for public participation. This webpage provides an overview of the Clean Water Fund budget process and opportunities to provide input in next year’s allocations.

Clean Water Fund

The Vermont Clean Water Fund was created by Act 64, also known as the Vermont Clean Water Act, which was passed by the legislature during the 2015 session and signed into law by Governor Shumlin on June 16, 2015. The law also established a Clean Water Fund Board to administer the Fund. The purpose of the Clean Water Fund is to provide additional state funds to help municipalities, farmers and others implement actions that will reduce pollution washing into Vermont’s rivers, streams, lakes, ponds and wetlands.
