Age Friendly Community Needs Assessment

In 2016, Erie County conducted a community needs assessment plan to identify issues influencing the health and quality of life of older adults and residents of all ages. 

A summary of the assessment results will be available in Summer 2017!

If your organization has recently completed an assessment of community needs in Erie County, let us know! Please send us reports, summaries, or data you can share with others in the Age Friendly Initiative that communicate specific needs within our community.
