From VT 211 Officials:
Individual Damage Collection Process
Vermont 211 serves as a 24/7/365 centralized access point for the collection of unmet needs and/or individual property damage (IA) statewide, whether during an exercise or real incident. Vermont 211, with input from its partners from across state government, created a centralized statewide system to capture Individual Assistance information, such as property damages incurred resulting from a natural or man-made disaster. Vermont 211 will be available 24/7/365 to field questions from the public and offer vetted information on services. Information is collected using a data form for each incident/disaster (whatever the scale).

The information obtained will be shared with the Emergency Management Director (Jason Gosselin, 2022) with the Vermont Agency of Human Services for purposes of updating the partners, providing situational awareness, and indicating trends, and may be used to determine if the Federal Individual Assistance declaration threshold has been met.
