The Nevada County Adult and Family Services Commission will convene two Community Forums to accept input on the needs of the impoverished in Nevada County.  Interested Nevada County residents, including representatives of community organizations and service providers, are invited to participate and share their views regarding the needs of very low-income populations of all ages.  The information gathered at the Forums will contribute to the needs assessment process required as a part of the 2020/21 Community Action Plan (CAP).  The CAP is part of the application process for ongoing Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) funding for supportive service programs.  For more information see the Flyer.

If you are unable to attend this meeting and would like to share your input in written form, please contact Suzi Kochems at             (530) 228-7811 or via email at and she will provide you a paper version of the needs assessment, or see the links below.
