SENDD provides assistance to member communities to conduct community needs assessment and income surveys.  We can help communities develop a questionnaire that is specific to their needs.  The surveys are unique to each community and asks the questions most relevant to them.  These assessments are often the first step in identifying the needs of a community and provides information for the leadership to consider in setting priority projects.  Community involvement is often a required element of grants, and this is one way to engage the entire community in the process.
