The Top Priorities / Problems in Livingston County
By state law, officials from each of the 62 New York State counties that coordinate block grants are required to conduct a community needs assessment study every four years. In the summer of 2008, the Livingston County Planning Department completed a survey with the Survey/Research Center at SUNY Geneseo. The nearly 600 respondents who participated in the Livingston County Community Needs Assessment study were asked to rank-order problems/needs facing local lower-income residents. The top 8 needs, in order of priority are as follows:
- Health Care
- Emergency Assistance
- Employment Support
- Independent Living
The full Livingston County Community Needs Assessment is available.
The program year for Community Service Block Grant (CSBG) begins October 1 and ends September 30. The application process for funding begins with notification to present delegate agencies and an announcement to additional agencies usually in April.
