About the Community Needs Assessment Tool

Community Needs Assessment (CNA) Resources

Getting the initial data report of the Community Profile is only the beginning of the Community Needs Assessment process. Once obtained, the data must be analyzed and needs, challenges, opportunities, and resources identified to lay the groundwork for Community Action work plans and strategic planning. To that end, in addition to guiding the development of the Community Needs Assessment Tool, the CAAP workgroup compiled resources to aid agencies in completing their needs assessment.


Missouri Community Scale Survey

The Missouri Community Action Network developed a six-category list of questions to help guide agencies in conducting a more in-depth assessment survey. Each category provides a vast menu of question choices that agencies can add to their surveys. Results from survey questions provide agencies with a better understanding of their community, program performances, and insights for future endeavors.
