Greetings, Pennsylvania Community Action Agencies!

Ready to do a Community Needs Assessment? Maybe do some mapping? This is the place for you.

The CAAP Report tool is provided to assist local CAA staff in the development of Community Needs Assessments (CNAs).

The CAAP Report tool offers data and maps that span a variety of topics from reliable federal and state sources: Population, Veterans, Employment, Education, Housing, Income, Poverty, Nutrition, Healthcare and Crime.  These data and maps can help you:

– Identify and evaluate target areas
– Explore potential trends
– Set outcome goals
– Provide meaningful and data-driven explanations

New to the CAAP Hub or the CNA process? Let us help!
