Moshannon Valley Correctional Center

Moshannon Valley Correctional Center or Moshannon Valley CI is a federal prison for men located in Philipsburg, Clearfield County, Pennsylvania, privately operated by the GEO Group under contract with the Federal Bureau of Prisons. (The city of Philipsburg straddles the border between Centre and Clearfield Counties. The prison stands in Clearfield County.) The facility began accepting prisoners in April 2006 and has been expanded since. At opening it was the first privately owned prison in Pennsylvania. It houses low-security, nonviolent criminal aliens who have less than 5 years on their remaining sentences. In September 2013 the future of Moshannon Valley’s continued operation was said to hinge on a federal contractual decision between this facility and the Northeast Ohio Correctional Center, privately run by the Corrections Corporation of America near Youngstown, Ohio.
