Sending a Mail/Care Package

All mail being sent to inmates is going to be screened and inspected for contraband. The good news is, if you mark the mail on the envelope as “special,” the USP Canaan staff has to open it in the presence of the inmate, so the inmate will know if anything has been removed or deemed as contraband.

Send all mail to this address:

Sending Money

Sending money to inmates is important, as their commissary accounts are very important to their well-being. With money in their accounts, they can make phone calls and purchase necessities.

The most efficient way is to send a Money gram. This will all funds to be processed every day, and inmates at USP Canaan should receive the money you deposit within a matter of hours. To move forward with this option, call 570-488-8000 or visit the website.

Another easy way is to send money by Wester Union as long as you have the inmate's eight digit register number with no spaces or dashes and the inmate's last name. To set this up, call 570-488-8000 or go to the website.

While you cannot send personal checks or cash, you can send a money order, but it needs to go through the USP Canaan processing system in Iowa, which slows down the process. You send the money order if you have the inmate’s full name and eight digit register number.

Phone calls

Since inmates at USP Canaan cannot receive phone calls, it is important to add money to their commissary accounts so they can make outgoing calls. You will need to be on the list of people they can call.
