NECAC Reveals Community Needs Assessment Results

The Northeast Community Action Corporation (NECAC) has revealed the results of its community needs assessment from earlier this year. Respondents indicated a critical need for affordable housing, financial concerns and food security. NECAC will spend the next several months creating a plan aimed at offering solutions for these needs. The survey is conducted every three years as part of NECAC’s requirements to receive federal and state funding for social service, community health and public housing programs. More than 700 people responded across 12 area counties. For more information on the survey visit
