ACTR awarded $100,000 grant

Addison County Transit Resources (ACTR) was recently awarded a $100,000 grant by Middlebury College. These funds are a contribution towards the 20 percent local matching requirements of a $2.85 million federal grant previously awarded to ACTR for the construction of its Community Transportation Center, which will be located off of Creek Road next to the VTrans maintenance facility.

“We are honored to receive this gift from Middlebury College in recognition of our contribution to the economic, social and environmental health of the Addison County region,” said Jim Moulton, executive director of ACTR. “We have now raised 97 percent of the funds needed to create this center, which will enable us to continue meeting the growing community transportation needs in the region.”

During the past 10 years, Middlebury College and its students have been key partners in providing local matching funds for ACTR’s daily operations. This support has significantly benefited the community as well.

“Middlebury College’s ongoing support of ACTR is an important partnership for both the College and the community,” said Dean George, president of the ACTR board of directors. “We are pleased they have extended their track record of investment in ACTR as we near the end of our fundraising goal for the Community Transportation Center.”

ACTR plans to operate out of the new Community Transportation Center by March 2013, shortly after marking its 20th anniversary of service to the region.
