YCAN 2023 Community Needs Assessment
The Park County 2023 Low-Income Community Needs Assessment is currently underway!
The Yellowstone Country Assistance Network (YCAN) has contracted with Align to gather input from Hot Springs County residents and professionals for their Community Service Block Grant (CSBG) Needs Assessment. CSBG is a federal program administered by the Wyoming Department of Health. These funds are used to assist low-income individuals and families.
The purpose of the assessment is to determine the best utilization of CSBG funds by creating a profile and prioritization of the needs and resources in the county. The key areas we will be exploring include employment, education & cognitive development, income & asset building, housing, and health & social/behavioral development. The process includes conducting focus groups with key partners and stakeholders such as yourself.
On behalf of YCAN, I would appreciate your participation in a focus group meeting. We are holding two 45–60-minute virtual meetings (using Zoom) on the following dates and times:
Thursday September 15, 2022 at noon
Wednesday September 21, 2022 at noon
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to let me know if you can attend one of these meetings. Once you respond, I will send you the zoom link.
If you cannot attend either session, please ask someone else in your agency to participate or contact me (at email@example.com) about setting up an interview.
Thank you so much for your participation in this process.
