Why is there a Community Needs Assessment (CNA) every three years?

Community Action Agencies (CAA), created through Lyndon Johnson’s War on Poverty, serve nearly every community throughout the United States. Over 1,000 agencies provide the opportunity to live in decency and dignity. To determine which services each CAA should be providing in their community, the Community Services Block Grant Act, under Section 676(b)(11) requires the CAA to conduct a Community Needs Assessment (CNA) every three years.

The purpose of the CNA is to:

  • Collect and analyze data about the needs of our community that have low incomes
  • Inform future funding decisions
  • Inform policy and program decisions
Why are there demographic questions on the survey?

We ask these questions to make sure we hear from diverse stakeholders and get a better understand of the unique differences in experience. 

Will my answers be linked to my name?

No. All questions in this survey are voluntary and anonymous.

How long will the survey take?

This survey should take about 10 minutes. Your contact information will not be linked with your survey responses in any way.

How long is the survey open?

The survey will run from March 5, 2024 to April 5, 2024.
