Meets as necessary or by appointment after an application is received.


The Almoners are elected to oversee the accounting and expenditures of funds given to the town through the will of the late Whiting Street and Wright Fund.  The purpose of the funds is to provide “relief and comfort of the worthy poor . . .”

Funds are available to residents of Goshen that face financial hardship.  Residents that would like to apply for consideration must fill out the application and submit it to the town treasurer.  Funds are typically one-time payments that are dispersed directly to a debtor of the approved resident as available.

After completing the application, please submit it to the Treasurer via the locked mailbox in the Town Hall.  All applications are confidential.

If you have questions or comments please contact the Almoners at the e-mail address listed on this page.
