Macomb Community Action launches Community Needs Assessment survey

Macomb Community Action (MCA) has launched a community survey to inform areas of need throughout Macomb County.

As a component of the MCA Community Needs Assessment, the survey will help determine future investments in Macomb County neighborhoods.

The survey is open to all Macomb County residents as well as individuals who work in or otherwise frequent Macomb County.

“Macomb Community Action is on the ground, every day, providing important support and services to our residents,” said Macomb County Executive Mark Hackel. “From food and heating assistance, to education programs for young children, their work is essential and helps thousands of individuals and families every year.

“The results of this survey will inform our team and expand our ability to serve the community. So it’s important that we all take the time to complete it and make our voices heard.”

“MCA understands the importance of having a pulse on pressing issues within our communities. Community participation in this survey is fundamental to ensure programming is as impactful and helpful to community members,” said Joe Cooke, interim co-director & division director, MCA.

Responses will be incorporated as part of a community needs assessment that will be developed later this spring in collaboration with other service providers in Macomb County. The community needs assessment will drive a strategic planning process that will inform programming in the coming years.

“Getting a current snapshot of the community will support continuous quality improvement,” said Linda Azar, interim co-director & division director, MCA. “As we adjust to life post-COVID, we do not want to make assumptions about the needs of the community.”

The survey will be open through April 16 and individuals who complete the survey may enter a weekly drawing for a $25 gasoline gift card.

The survey is available in English, Spanish and Arabic and can be completed online at
