MONTANA – ServeMontana, the Governor’s Office of Community Service, wants to hear your perspective via the short, online Community Needs Assessment.

“The assessment is an opportunity to empower voices and transform communities through AmeriCorps service” says Sarah R. Sadowski, Director of the Governor’s Office of Community Service. “From Montana’s rural towns and tribal nations to our most populated cities; we are all ears.”

Responses to the assessment help craft the State Service Plan, which will guide the path of AmeriCorps national service in the Big Sky State for the next three years. The Community Needs Assessment covers the following focus areas: Economic Opportunity, American Indian Affairs, Education, Healthy Futures, Veterans & Military Families, Montanans Age 55+, Land & Natural Resources, and Disaster Services. Respondents can choose up to three pressing needs within each focus area, identifying specific concerns in our communities such as financial literacy, tribal language preservation, and legal assistance.

The anonymous, accessible Community Needs Assessment is online at Individuals, community organizations, nonprofits, and government agencies are encouraged to complete the assessment. If you have questions or would like a paper copy of the assessment, please contact or (406) 444-9077.
