Community Needs Assessment


Issaquah strives to be a sustainable and healthy community where every person is important and where meeting basic human needs is a shared responsibility between individuals and the community.

In addition, the City Council established set a goal to keep Issaquah moving toward this vision.  

In 2016, City staff produced Building a Healthy Community to shape policy decisions to enhance the Issaquah community's overall health.

The next step is a Community Needs Assessment to identify priority health and human services disparities within Issaquah, which will in turn help us determine ways to address these challenges. 

Starting in early 2017, the Community Needs Assessment Advisory Group started to gather and analyze data.

A final report is anticipated in July 2017. Once the report is finalized, efforts will turn to next steps and targeted steps to address priority health and human services disparities within our community.  

The City has allocated $35,000 to complete the Community Needs Assessment.
