Community Needs Assessment Tool

CNA Tool History


The Tool was developed in partnership with the Missouri Community Action Network (MCAN), The Institute of People, Place and Possibility (IP3), and the University of Missouri CARES, under the guidance of a CAAP workgroup consisting of staff from local PA Community Action Agencies. The PA Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) funded the acquisition and development. PA Community Action Agencies fund the annual maintenance of information supplied by CARES and the Pennsylvania State Data Center (PSDC). In December 2018, the system was migrated from IP3's Community Commons platform to CARES' Engagement Network platform.
