Moshannon Valley, PA – A Clearfield County correctional facility will be closing this year.

The Clearfield County Commissioners were extremely disappointed to learn that the Federal Bureau of Prisons has decided to not renew their contract with the Moshannon Valley Correctional Facility owned by the GEO Group, Inc., after March 31, 2021.

This facility employs over two hundred and fifty individuals and the loss of these family sustaining jobs will be a significant blow to the local economy, particularly that of the Moshannon Valley.

The Commissioners are currently in communication with Federal and State officials in the hope of finding a suitable use for the facility with other federal or state agencies.

They hope that the GEO Group is able to successfully market this great resource so that the facility is able to continue to employ many Clearfield County citizens for years to come.
