New American
Needs Assessment Survey


Bismarck Global Neighbors has been conducting a Needs Assessment Survey through funding from the Bush Foundation via the Consensus Council and will hopefully publish the results in 2023.  


BGN partnered with University of Mary in this project. BGN has been collecting surveys from New Americans in ND, primarily in the Bismarck-Mandan area to learn more about local New American strengths and needs. We hope to collect over 200 responses from diverse community members.
