As it strives to reach its goals, the Deerfield Valley Communications Union District (DVCUD) benefits from important partnerships with various agencies and associations. 

Soon after enabling legislation was passed, the Windham Regional Commission (WRC) secured a grant to conduct a regional survey, do a feasibility study, and to create a business plan for a communications union district. Learn more about WRC’s role and work.

DVCUD is one of nine member organizations in the Vermont Communications Union District Association (VCUDA). All but one of these CUDs sprang to life after town meetings in March 2020. Leadership from the CUDs meets regularly to share best practices and strategy, to learn about the quickly changing world of internet service, and to support one another toward success.

The Vermont Department of Public Service maintains a webpage of regularly updated information, links to the state’s CUDs, as well as a regularly updated map of districts.

DVCUD has received important foundational funding from: Brattleboro Development Credit Corporation, The State of Vermont (via the federal CARES Act and the American Rescue Plan Act), and The Vermont Community Foundation.
