Economic Services Division (ESD)
The Economic Services Division (ESD) helps Vermonters meet their basic needs through programs such as 3SquaresVT, Essential Person, Fuel Assistance, and Reach Up.
These programs provide a safety net for individuals and families who may be experiencing unemployment, single parenthood, aging, disability, or other life-changing event.
ESD serves over 110,000 families at any given time. This means more than one in five Vermonters will benefit from ESD programs this year.
