Thank you for participating in the Inner Coast Region Needs Assessment. Your feedback is greatly appreciated. 
The survey should take less than 20 minutes to complete. 

About the Assessment:
  • Who is conducting this survey? Colusa, Napa, Solano, and Yolo Resource Conservation Districts (RCDs) and Clear Lake Environmental Research Center (CLERC) were awarded a Regional Forest and Fire Capacity program block grant for the Inner Coast Region. The program, funded by the California Department of Conservation, aims to increase regional capacity to prioritize, develop, and implement projects to improve forest health and fire resilience.
  • What needs are being assessed? The Inner Coast Region Needs Assessment seeks to understand capacity building needs across Colusa, Napa, Lake, Solano, and Yolo counties. You will be asked about a variety of capacities related to forest health, vegetation management, and fire resilience efforts, including collaboration and partnerships, planning (e.g., project prioritization, environmental compliance, permitting, etc.), implementation (e.g., access to equipment, crews, etc.), monitoring, and organizational capacity.
  • How will results be used? The results will inform regional priorities for capacity building efforts funded through the Regional Forest and Fire Capacity program. In addition, a report distilling key capacity needs and priorities will be disseminated across the region and state, serving as a resource to funders and other entities focused on improving forest health and fire resiliency. 
  • Who will have access to the data? Only the partners conducting this survey (i.e. Colusa, Napa, Solano, Yolo RCDs and CLERC) will have access to the survey data. Any results disseminated outside this group will be reported at an aggregate level and will not include any identifying information.
