Iowa State University Extension (ISU) needs your help. We are interested in your ideas about the most important needs in communities like yours and how ISU Extension could be useful in meeting those needs. Information that you provide will benefit all Iowans as it is used over the next five years to provide programs and services that help Iowa residents and their communities to become the best.

Your name or web address will not be associated with your answers when the data are compiled. Your web address will not be shared with anyone at any time.

We encourage you to ask any questions you have about this process. For questions, you may contact Michael Ouart at myrt@iastate.edu. In the subject of the e-mail indicate "Needs Assessment."
