Monroe Township lies in the central portion of Pennsylvania, in the heart of the Susquehanna Valley. The Township is situated in the northeast corner of Snyder County, along the west shore of the Susquehanna River, just north of Selinsgrove and across the river from Sunbury. Its western boundary is also water bounded–—formed by Penns Creek, whose waters are known for excellent fishing. Union County forms the northern boundary. In addition, the Township surrounds three sides of Shamokin Dam Borough.

Historically, agriculture has been the foundation of the Snyder County economy. With the gradual improvement of US 15 to the Township’s southern border, increasing numbers of Susquehanna Valley commuters have settled in Monroe Township. Many residents today work in Sunbury, Lewisburg, Williamsport, or Harrisburg.

The Township is home to the village of Hummels Wharf the Susquehanna Valley Mall, and a commercial strip, that includes Monroe Marketplace, that has developed along US 15. Plans to realign and upgrade US 15 to a limited access highway through the Township have been discussed over the past several decades and are now proceeding into the design and bidding stages. This major transportation improvement, expected to be open to traffic in 2024, will impact growth and local land use demands.
