Guide to Conducting Community Needs Assessments

Guide to Conducting Community Needs Assessment

This guide is intended to assist communities applying for funding through the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services to prevent child maltreatment.  The guide is organized by steps communities can take to complete a needs assessment. While we present specific strategies to conduct a needs assessment, we recognize that there are multiple ways to conduct needs assessments. Communities are encouraged to use and adapt components of this guide to meet their needs.
