    BURLINGTON Two central Vermont organizations are among the recipients of grants for nonprofits that serve low-income Vermonters, Efficiency Vermont has announced.

    According to a news release, the Community Energy Partnership grants will enable five Vermont nonprofits to provide energy-saving products and assistance to clients. In addition, winners will obtain training and support from Efficiency Vermont to enable them to better work with clients in their homes.

    The winners, selected as part of a competitive process announced at the end of 2014, will provide clients a range of services, including identification of energy-saving opportunities, installation of efficient products and education.

    Central Vermont Community Action Council, based in Barre, will use a $19,890 grant to train 176 home-based child care providers to deepen services, according to the release.

    Montpelier-based Onion River Exchange will use an $8,150 grant to install energy efficiency measures in a minimum of 40 households, expand a lending library of efficiency tools and weatherization materials, and host educational workshops in Montpelier and surrounding towns.
