Pro Action’s 2022-2025 Community Needs Assessment

Pro Action works to build a community of resilient individuals and families who can meet their basic needs, overcome adversity, and prosper. We do this by providing services in our rural, upstate community where conditions such as job scarcity, geographic isolation, low educational attainment, family adversity, and poor health interact to form a landscape of complex needs related to poverty, both its causes and effects.

After an exhaustive assessment of available data, our 2022-2025 Community Needs Assessment is complete! Check out our report which defines key findings about the causes and conditions of poverty in our service area.

Office of the New York State Comptroller: NYS Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli Bulletin

One In Ten New York Households Suffer from Food Insecurity

Cited from the bulletin: New York Office of State Comptroller sent this bulletin at 03/04/2023 07:00 AM EST

Around 800,000 New York households experienced food insecurity at some point between 2019-21, according to a report from State Comptroller DiNapoli. The number declined during the COVID-19 pandemic due to federal relief programs and the expansion of federal food assistance programs. DiNapoli raised the concern that food insecurity may grow as federal benefits lapse. Notably, additional Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits expired on March 1. Over the last two years, Black and Hispanic or Latino adult New Yorkers were more likely to report not having enough food than white adult New Yorkers.

“With all the challenges people are facing during these difficult times, we should ensure New Yorkers don’t go hungry. Our nation’s nutrition programs should be expanded to help those who are struggling to feed themselves and their families,” said DiNapoli.

This is the second report from State Comptroller DiNapoli’s office examining issues impacting New Yorkers in need. His first report examined poverty trends.
