During a workshop meeting held July 23, Allison Fisher, director of the Mifflin-Juniata Counties Human Services Department, told the commissioners the funding will be allocated through the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development.
said it will give her
department an opportunity to expand permanent supportive housing and provide services to the homeless and those at risk of becoming homeless.
"The target population will be persons who are typically underserved by funding, and the loss of one or two paychecks could mean risk of homelessness," Fisher
explained at the workshop.
