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.

The populations we serve:

  1. Children & youth;
  2. Families with children;
  3. Seniors;
  4. People with physical disabilities; and
  5. Low- and moderate-income families and individuals.

For more information about what we do, please read the ESD section of the Outcomes for Vermonters book.

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.
