Data & Publications
Community Action provides programs and services in all 53 counties across North Dakota. From children to seniors, rural communities to urban areas, North Dakota's seven Community Action Agencies work in every corner of the state. We know from experience that every community faces obstacles, but no two communities face the same barriers. That is why our Community Action Agencies use specific community based assessments to drive the solutions that best respond to the local needs of each of our communities.

North Dakota Statewide Needs Assessment
Community Action Agencies conduct needs assessments every three years as a requirement for the Community Services Block grant (CSBG) which supports community-based anti-poverty programs. The primary purpose of the study is to better understand the current conditions and priorities of a community so that local action plans can be developed and community resources/services can be allocated effectively.
