Community Needs Assessment Matrix

Understanding the Assessment Matrix

The community needs assessment matrix is a tool that highlights the important interactions between community subsystems. The matrix is used in assessment to help identify potential collaborations and sources of conflict that impact community decision-making.

Open your notebooks and answer the following:

  • Describe one collaboration that will be important to help the community resolve their feelings about the redevelopment plan.

  • Which interactions that currently don't exist do you believe will be important to create to help the community in reaching its redevelopment decision?

  • What groups or subsystems do you believe hold a great deal of power in the community? Describe the interaction between two of those systems.
