Clark County needs assessment report available online

By , Columbian staff writer

Clark County Community Services’ 2020 needs assessment is now available in English, Spanish, Russian, Vietnamese and Chuukese. The report outlines the needs and priorities within the community as identified by people and households experiencing economic hardship. A printed copy of the report is available upon request.

The assessment, which is conducted by the Community Action, Housing, and Development division in Clark County Community Services, is required to be conducted every three years by the Federal Community Services Block Grant Act.

Persons and households with low incomes provide feedback via a comprehensive survey covering six areas of need: employment, education, housing, income and asset building, physical health, behavioral health and support services.
