MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont Community Foundation has awarded 29 grants to communities around the state for work that helps connect people to their neighbors, their land, and their history in ways that strengthen the community.

The foundation awarded a total of $57,434 in what it calls its small and inspiring grants.

The grants - ranging from $1,000 to $2500 - went to projects like a community landscape and conservation program in New Haven, a theater program for youth in Dorset and to support a series of conversations with experts in music, food, volunteerism and language at the Danville library.

Organizers say two remaining rounds of grants will be awarded. The deadlines for nonprofits to apply are by 5 p.m. on Oct. 1 and Dec. 1.
