2020 Regional Community Needs Assessment

If you live in North Dakota, we want to hear from you!  Regardless if you're a provider, client, Board member, community member, advocate, or just want to chime in, Community Action Partnership of North Dakota and North Dakota State University invite your feedback through a community needs assessment survey. The survey should take no more than 10 minutes to complete.

Please note, this survey is specific to your region in North Dakota. Click on the county where you live and complete the survey!

Why a Community Needs Assessment?

Each of the eight regions in North Dakota will see comprehensive results that showcase the needs in their specific geographic region related to employment, income and asset-building, education, housing, health and social/behavior development, civic engagement and other supports.

At Community Action, we continually conduct needs assessments across North Dakota because our Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) program supports community-based, anti-poverty programs. Local Community Action agencies receive funding from CSBG to develop local action plans based on assessment of needs, currently available services and locally available public and private resources. Action plans target one or more of three main themes: 1) Individuals and families with low incomes are stable and achieve economic security; 2) Communities where people with low incomes live are healthy and offer economic opportunity; and 3) People with low incomes are engaged and active in building opportunities in communities. 

Our survey closes on August 31, 2020.

Thank you to the Consensus Council for providing funding for this important needs assessment!
