Town Service Officer

Gloria Dawson (802-668-8357)

The Town Service Officer is charged with assisting individuals within the town who require emergency food, fuel, or shelter.  He or she is the municipal official who administers the “general assistance” program after normal business hours of the Vermont Economic Services Division.  This program provides emergency financial assistance to help Vermont’s residents and those transients in the state that have nowhere else to turn and require support.  The Town Service Officer will provide support within program limits to assist a family or individual until the Vermont Economic Services Division office is next open.  General assistance consists of financial aid for food, emergency temporary housing, clothing, transportation, electricity, fuel, and medical care.
