In an effort to improve the Community Services Block Grant of Otero, Bent and Crowley Counties, Otero County contracted with the Otero County Health Department to conduct a Community Needs Assessment. The needs assessment tells us what consumers as well as other agencies, feel are the needs in the area. This will help determine which direction we go when completing our next grant application.
