Virginia Cooperative Extension (VCE) has announced a statewide needs assessment survey, aiming to better understand the needs of communities across the state. VCE Loudoun encourages all residents, regardless of their past engagement with Extension services, to participate.

Take the survey here.

VCE Loudoun, an educational outreach program of Virginia Tech and Virginia State University, provides research-based educational programs for Loudoun County residents. These programs promote healthy living, improving our food systems, youth development and taking care of the environment.

The findings from this survey will help VCE Loudoun refine its priorities and develop programs that best address the needs of Loudoun County residents. Each person’s valuable perspective will help VCE Loudoun prioritize programs to best meet the needs of the people in our communities. It will inform VCE Loudoun’s programming for the next four years and will help the agency understand residents’ perceptions of potential community issues and their suggestions for VCE’s focus areas.

The survey is divided into three sections: personal background, community issues, and further personal information The survey is anonymous and is estimated to take about 10 minutes. The collected data will be kept confidential.

The survey will remain open through August 31, 2023.
