Green Mountain Passports
The Green Mountain Passport Program was established in 1973 for seniors and disabled veterans.
TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR A PASSPORT YOU MUST BE:
- A resident of Vermont and 62 years or older
- or 100% disabled as a result of disease of injury suffered while serving in the armed forces
- or a resident of the Vermont Veterans Home in Bennington
HOLDERS OF THIS CARD ARE ELIGIBLE FOR:
- Reduced prices on goods and services from hundreds of Vermont’s private businesses (discount items could include groceries, health car supplies, movie tickets, fuel etc.)
- Free admission to state parks, museums, and fully state sponsored events.
Some businesses display a silver decal issued by the State for the Green Mountain Passport showing their participation in the program. Always ask if a discount is available for people who carry a Green Mountain Passport because not all people display this sign on their door.
There are several uses for this passport besides the above:
- It can be used as an identification card – especially if you do not have a driver’s license.
- You may note on the back any medical information, which may be helpful in an emergency.
- The card also notes who should be contacted in case of emergency, which could be extremely helpful with a phone number written.
The cost of this card is $2.00 – which is a one-time fee. If the card is lost at any time, just go back to your Town Clerk and they will issue a duplicate free of charge. Your card never expires!
