Connecticut LGBTQ+ Needs Assessment

The LGBTQ+ Health and Human Services Network is conducting a community survey that will identify the needs of the LGBTQ+ community in Connecticut. Without this survey, the State lacks sufficient data to identify the scale and diversity of needs in the LGBTQ+ community. This lack of data also means that LGBTQ+ organizations in the state often struggle to secure adequate funding from funders and grants. The Consultation Center at Yale has been hired to help develop and administer the survey on behalf of the Network.
Widespread completion of the community survey is vital to providing data to LGBTQ+ organizations, funders, and local and state government to support initiatives for our community needs.
