In his State of the State Address and 2018 Budget Address, Governor Scott outlined action plans to address two ideas that started with the Vermont Futures Project:

  • The Vermont Futures Project previously encouraged state agencies to look at ways to better market Vermont in order to attract new workers to the state. Gov. Scott and his team recently initiated a $3.2 million, state-of-the-art targeted marketing campaign to identify and attract people who already have ties to Vermont, including those who were born here, went to college here or once lived here.
  • Create a public-private partnership that uses a recruiter to place out-of-state workers with our small businesses, particularly those businesses that cannot afford a full-time recruitment operation.
