Comments sought for Emergency Solutions Grant
Indiana County residents and agencies are invited to provide comment and input for an Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) that will be submitted by Indiana County to the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development.

Indiana County is preparing an application for the emergency shelter and housing relocation and stabilization service activities.
