Community needs are systematically reviewed so that funding resources are focused where they are most needed to create the successful communities envisioned by the Huntingdon County Comprehensive Plan.
Adequate financial resources, consistently and wisely focused on the needs of our communities are necessary for fulfillment of our vision for Huntingdon County as established by the Huntingdon County Comprehensive Plan, "It is our goal that Huntingdon County achieve economic prosperity while retaining the qualities of rural and small town living."
