On March 29, 2019, the Town of St. Johnsbury in partnership with Caledonia Food Co-op applied for a USDA Rural Development grant totaling $30,000 to pay for a feasibility study for the Co-op's grocery store. The Co-op anticipates the announcement of the grant's approval in mid-summer. The key components of the feasibility study are a market study to be conducted by G2G Research Group and financial projections to be prepared by CDS Consulting. The complete results of the study are expected by early fall.
