Welcome to Northampton County Human Services

Public Hearing

Northampton County Department of Human Services Human Services Block Grant Plan

Pennsylvania’s Act 80 of 2012 requires counties to submit a human services block grant plan. As part of the planning process, counties are required to hold two public hearings. The County of Northampton will hold its public hearings via Zoom on Monday, May 20, 2024 at 9:00 AM and Wednesday, May 22, 2024 at 1:00 PM

Please register for either or both hearings, by emailing Georgene Corpora, Executive Secretary, Department of Human Services, at gcorpora@norcopa.gov 

Interested citizens are encouraged to attend. Consumers of Northampton County-funded services and service providers are especially encouraged to attend. Input from the public meetings will be used to guide current and future efforts.

The plan is to cover the use of the six state-only funded allocations, which are the: Mental Health Community Base Funding, Behavioral Health Services Initiative (Mental Health and Drug and Alcohol), Intellectual Disabilities Base Funding, Act 152 Funding (Drug and Alcohol), Human Services Development Fund, and Homeless Assistance Program.
