About Vermont Clean Cities

Advancing Alternative Transportation

Our Mission

The mission of the Clean Cities program is to advance the economic, environmental and energy security of the U.S. by supporting local decisions to adopt practices that contribute to reduced petroleum consumption in the transportation sector.  The Vermont Clean Cities Coalition carries out this mission for the entire state of Vermont.

Our History

The Vermont Clean Cities Coalition (VTCCC) was designated as a Clean Cities Coalition by the U.S. Department of Energy in 2001. Past and present stakeholders are numerous and diverse, consisting of both individuals and organizations. VTCCC activities have included maintaining information and databases, writing grant proposals, creating public awareness and interacting within the national network of Clean Cities programs.

Originally housed at the Snelling Center for Government, the Vermont Clean Cities Coalition found its permanent home at the UVM Transportation Research Center on July 1st, 2007.   Since 2007, the coalition has helped with many events and provided resources to Vermont fleets looking to utilize alternative fuels.

Funding

The VTCCC is primarily funded through federal grants through the national Clean Cities program as well as, in-kind support from the UVM TRC.   Over the years VTCCC has received grants from various governmental and non-governmental entities throughout the state of Vermont including the High Meadows Fund and the Department of Public Works.
