Community Capacity Assessment Survey

The web-based community capacity assessment survey helps civic leaders from New Hampshire, Maine and Vermont cities and towns measure their capacity for maintaining the following community attributes:
  • Cultural and Historic Heritage
  • Health and Well Being
  • Economic Opportunity
  • Sustainable Environment
  • Community Services and Infrastructure
  • Social Networks and Civic Engagement
Survey Results
After completing each of the six survey sections, the survey community respondent(s) will receive a score that provides a rough indicator of the community's capacity to address issues pertaining to that particular topic. In addition, the community's strengths and opportunities will be summarized based on the survey responses and a directory of Extension resources will be provided.
