Technical Assistance and Support for Community Action Planning in conjunction with RAND Needs Assessment

Partnership/Type: Air Force
Status: Completed Project

In 2017, the Air Force released the Community Feedback Tool (CFT). This survey, a heavily revised version of the previous Air Force Community Assessment Survey (AFCAS), provided an opportunity for Active, Guard and Reserve Airmen, spouses of Airmen, and Air Force civilian employees to influence change in the Air Force. The CFT process is completed in conjunction with Air Force Instruction 90-501 (AFI 90-501); which calls for the Community Action Information Board (CAIB) to use the CFT to assess the health of the community and to enact positive programs and services that foster resiliency. The Clearinghouse was tasked with providing proactive technical assistance and data interpretation to installation CAIB staff. An overview of the work completed for this project is below.
