Waterloo Community Needs Assessment

Published 01/07/2021 by Global Communities


Global Communities was asked by John Deere to design and conduct a participatory community needs assessment in Waterloo, Iowa in partnership with local community members and local partners. The assessment used an participatory-based approach to develop an in-depth understanding of the assets, opportunities, and gaps existing in the Waterloo community in order to inform and strengthen the community projects led by John Deere and other stakeholder organizations to lead to greater impact. The community assessment complemented previous community assessments and existing demographic data to inform and strengthen work that John Deere and other community stakeholders are preparing to carry out.
