Community Needs Assessments

One of the community services we provide free of charge is a community needs assessment conducted every three (3) years for the counties we serve, funding for this is provided for by CSBG grant as is a federal requirement of CSBG grant funding. As part of this assessment we include low income individuals’ participation as well as customer satisfaction data to gather qualitative data.  The assessment also provides quantitative data we collect on current data specific to poverty and its prevalence related to gender, age, race/ethnicity for their service area(s).  The final reports are posted on our website and used by many organizations, governments and individuals seeking grant or other funding for community programs and services. The final report will show key findings on the causes and conditions of poverty and the needs of the communities assessed as well as a ranking of the community’s current poverty needs. The board utilizes these rankings in determining CSBG funding priorities each year.
