COVID-19 Community Survey: Capturing Stories and Accessing Needs

The rapidly changing nature of COVID-19 is disrupting the world and dramatically changing the ways in which communities and businesses interact. We understand that the COVID-19 pandemic has put a strain on many communities across the state. As communities continue to confront this crisis, the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture Cooperative Extension Service seeks to be of service and assistance. The following survey aims to identify innovative ways communities are responding to the crisis and challenges communities are facing so we can provide appropriate support moving forward. Thank you so much for your participation.

TEXARKANA, Ark. –

The Community, Professional and Economic Development unit at the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture Cooperative Extension Service has launched a community survey to assess major challenges facing communities and how they are responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

The survey aims to understand the challenges facing community groups and identify the resources needed to help communities respond, reflect, and look towards the future.

 

While assessing community needs is crucial, the survey also seeks to capture stories of resiliency--like organizing mutual networks, hand-sewing masks, and planning caravan birthday parties—to illustrate all the ways communities are demonstrating unity and cultivating support.

 

COVID-19 triumphs and challenges will be shared via social media, blog posts, and other ways so communities can collaboratively identify best practices, reflect on lessons learned, and celebrate successes.

 

This survey data will also inform future community, professional and economic development program efforts and new resources for communities across Arkansas.
