    The Vermont Sustainable Jobs Fund was created by the Vermont Legislature in 1995 to accelerate the development of Vermont's green economy. The Fund does this by providing early stage grant funding, loans, and technical assistance to entrepreneurs, businesses, farmers, networks and others interested in developing jobs and markets in the green economy. The VSJF typically focuses on 2 or 3 of the market sectors identified by the legislature at any one time. The fund's current focus is on increasing the local production and local use of biofuels, and sustainable forest products and in strengthening Vermont's food system. The VSJF Flexible Capital Fund offers a new kind of risk capital for growing Vermont businesses in the natural resource sectors. The Flex Fund balances equity features and returns with the reality of small business in Vermont, offering flexible mezzanine debt and technical assistance to fit Vermont's early and growth stage companies' needs.
