2005 Low-Income Needs Assessment

SCCAA’s “Low-Income Needs Assessment”, which the agency does every four years, is the foundation of planning efforts for Community Action and other public and private, nonprofit service providers in Skagit County.  The 2005 document may be the most ambitious of all previous studies. The data collected from over 1,000 households are being used for several purposes.

The Executive Summary functions as a stand-alone document, and provides a bird’s eye view of this and previous needs assessments: the needs of low-income service provider clients in Skagit County.  The reader will also find a special targeted study of the Hamilton area in eastern Skagit County. The report may be viewed, and duplicated as desired, in its entirety, or by chapters as follows:
