•Ideally, a needs assessment is conducted beforeestablishing any new social program.
•However, a needs assessment can generate information that is used to aid planning efforts at all stages of a program’s development—start up, expansion, renovation, or closure of particular “services” within a program
•In particular, needs assessment for an existing program is helpful when there is a poor fit between client need and existing services.
•Signs of poor fit are indicated when services are insufficient (or when services made available to clients but not used)

Speaking of the resource allocation policy of YDP, would you please elaborate a bit more? I wonder if all recognized community organizations can get funding from YDP.

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?
