The Livingston County Office of Workforce Development (LCOWD) has launched a public survey to gauge the needs of residents living in poverty in the local community.
The results of the survey will be used to direct the LCOWD’s Community Services Block Grant funding towards programs that most closely address the identified needs. The Community Services Block Grant is a federally funded program that provides funds for services that aim to alleviate poverty in under-resourced communities.
“It’s critical that we hear from as many people as possible to accurately measure the needs of those living in poverty in our community,” said LCOWD Director Ryan Snyder. “By gathering feedback from a diverse pool of community members, we hope to gain a better understanding of the unique challenges facing those here living in poverty and to develop targeted, effective programs and services that address their most crucial needs.”
The survey, which will take around five minutes to complete, will be available until February 15, 2023. All answers will be kept anonymous and will be used to inform the development of new programs and services, as well as to assess the effectiveness of existing anti-poverty initiatives.
