Goodwill Voucher Program  

Goodwill Industries of Kentucky has made its voucher program available through Kentucky’s Community Action Agencies. Agencies will provide client intake, process Goodwill Vouchers, monitor allocation levels, and provide reports to Goodwill showing distribution of vouchers. Agencies will identify individuals in need and provide them with a voucher that the client can exchange for goods at participating Goodwill stores. There will be no refunds from Goodwill if the entirety of the voucher is not used.

Program Eligibility

To be considered eligible for a voucher to be issued an individual must:
