Results of Local Needs Assessments

If you have a survey or local report that backs up your case, by all means, include it in your problem statement. This shows local investment in solving the problem you are addressing, especially if the study was done by another organization in the community.

All grant makers are concerned with your own and your community's investment in the project. Why? Because, with more groups involved in your project, there is more chance for success and for continuation after grant money runs out, as it surely will.

What constitutes a local needs assessment?

• A survey by your organization.

• Results of a related project in the community that provided a part of the information necessary to the success of your project.

• Results of a previous project by your organization.

• A regular report by a credible agency or group in your community.
