Letter to Members from Michael Snyder
We hope you and your families are staying safe and healthy. In our note last week regarding forest economy businesses and the Stay Home, Stay Safe order, we mentioned resources we were creating to support you and our vital forest economy businesses. This information is now live on our website.
Please click through to find information specific to the forest economy, a survey to inform us about the many impacts of the COVID-19 crisis and to help us develop a response plan, and additional ways to let us know how we can best support a recovery effort. This page also includes links to resources from the Agency of Commerce and Community Development, the lead agency providing business support and information on the CARES Act. As it becomes clearer what additional support is needed or available, we’ll continue to develop forestry-specific resources and responses and keep you informed.
Finally, and as always, please reach out to me or Deputy Lincoln with any questions or thoughts you’d like to share.
Thank you and be well.
Vermont State Forester and Commissioner, VT Forests, Parks, & Recreation
