Comprehensive Local Needs Assessment (CLNA)

Resources for Stakeholder Recruitment - Prior to preparing Applications for the Perkins V Grant, each institution will need to conduct a thorough Comprehensive Local Needs Assessment (CLNA) that includes identifying and reaching out to representatives of special populations. These special populations include individuals with disabilities, individuals who are economically disadvantaged, homeless individuals, youth who have aged out of the foster care system, youth with a parent who is a member of the armed forces, and Native American youth. This guide provides resources to assist college administrators with their efforts to identify and recruit special populations representatives. Where possible, it provides information about the groups, including descriptions of the programs and outreach they provide.
