Community Assessment Needs Survey
 
FORT SMITH, Ark. (May 11, 2020) - The City of Fort Smith is seeking your participation to determine needs for an allocation of $530,840 in CDBG-CV funds for the specific use to prevent, prepare and respond to the coronavirus
Your feedback will help us understand the problems, identify solutions, and prioritize funding.
 
We are especially calling on the organizations that serve our low to moderate income (LMI) citizens to complete the survey based on your calls for assistance. 
 
The survey will close on Sunday, May 17, 2020. 
 
Due to the nature of this health crisis there is a shortened time to respond. You can help by completing the survey:

Anyone who has a stake in our community is encouraged to complete the survey. 
The survey can also be found on the City of Fort Smith Website www.FortSmithAr.gov
at the bottom of the home page.
 
For nonprofits serving low income citizens it cannot be stressed enough that each organization ask the person applying or requesting assistance to complete the survey online. 
 
Should someone have a disability, language barrier or does not have access to the internet, please call 479-784-2209.  The questions will be read and answers placed into the survey for them.
