Findings from DYCD Community Needs Assessment Released

The New York City Department of Youth and Community Development (DYCD) released findings from its Community Needs Assessment (CNA). DYCD introduced the 2016 CNA to hear directly from New Yorkers and document their views on what is needed to improve the well-being of their own communities. More than 13,400 paper and electronic surveys were gathered from New Yorkers, including youth and adults from the city at large, attendees of public hearings, public school principals, faith-based leaders and interfaith organizations, Community Board leaders, and community-based organization program directors. The findings demonstrate that programs and services in the categories of education, employment/career advancement, and basic needs are the top priorities, and these are the resources that would especially benefit low-income New Yorkers.
