The Community Needs Assessment (CNA) Online Tool provides a significant amount of the secondary data to help you along your way to complete community needs assessment with the click of a button.  Through the tool you can measure and visually represent the fundamental drivers of poverty in your community through access to thousands of databases, a report generator, and a mapping tool.

The CNA tool allows you to select specific state(s) and county(ies) to be included in your report, allowing you to focus on your particular service area, as well as select particular data elements to include (such as employment, education, nutrition, etc).
