WASHINGTON -

Vermont officials say new funding from the USDA will help attract snowmobilers to the state.

Vermont's congressional delegation announced Tuesday the Vermont Association of Snow Travelers (VAST) has been awarded a $27,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

VAST will use the funding to produce promotional videos, showcasing the towns of St. Johnsbury and Danville. They'll highlight points of interest, local businesses and amenities. The grant will also enable VAST to create an online adventure planner.
