MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) – The state of Vermont is making public the details of how $1.25 billion in federal coronavirus relief funds were spent in the state, the Department of Finance and Management has announced.
The Vermont Coronavirus Relief Fund Transparency Dashboards contain pages that reflect the many ways the relief funds were spent, including grants, contracts, direct payments and other information, the department said Wednesday.
The appropriations include initial emergency spending requested by the governor and authorized by the Legislature and the funds appropriated in various legislative acts passed by the Legislature and signed by Gov. Phil Scott.
The information reflects information through Jan. 31 and will be updated quarterly.
“These dashboards offer a transparent view of the receipt and uses of an extraordinary amount of federal financial relief,” Finance and Management Commissioner Adam Greshin said in a written statement.
