Community Needs and Resources Assessment

Community Surveys

The Community Action Partnership of North Alabama conducts a formal Community Needs and Resources Assessment (CNRA) every three years as directed by CSBG Organizational Standards. The CNRA is conducted by collecting data from our communities to determine the top six needs of individuals, families and communities. The input of experienced community members reveals where services are utilized and where service gaps exist, identifies the most valuable community resources and ultimately guides the strategic planning of the agency.
