Community Needs Assessments
How should public investment in your community be prioritized? Mosaic's community needs assessments draw on the perspectives of stakeholders and residents as well as demographic data and information on the location and quality of key community assets to determine where gaps exist in the provision of services or facilities. Our assessments provide client communities with a plan for prioritizing future capital investments based on local needs.
Community Transformation Plans
Affordable housing developers who work with Georgia DCA’s Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program know the value of a solid Community Transformation Plan to achieve project viability. Mosaic closely follows the annual QAP development cycle and is ready to assist with formation of local Community Quarterback Boards, the recruitment of stakeholders representing the key education, employment, transportation, and healthcare sectors, and facilitation of public meetings to obtain input on community transformation objectives.
Communities need input or feedback from their citizens in a variety of circumstances. Whether seeking a consensus on the location of a future park, opinions on services to be offered at a community center, or surveying general impressions of the public on municipal service delivery, Mosaic can design a scientifically useful survey and actively manage survey participation to ensure a representative sample is achieved. Our graphical and insightful interpretation of survey results gives decision-makers the information they need to make critical decisions.
