NEW CASTLE — Lawrence County Social Services will have a public hearing next week on the county’s 2012 emergency solutions grant application.

The session will begin at 10 a.m. Monday at the agency’s 241 W. Grant St. office.

The county plans to apply for a grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development. The money would be used to assist with services provided to the county’s homeless population and in the identification of these individuals’ specific needs.

Written comments may also be submitted. However, those must be received by Friday. They can be mailed to Kathy Presnar, Lawrence County Social Services, Box 189, 241 W. Grant St., New Castle, Pa. 16103.
