Lac Courte OReilles Band Community Assessment
April 10, 2019
The Lac Courte Oreilles Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians launched the LCO Community Assessment this week with an initial housing unit mapping operation that will be followed by a household survey. This critical effort will develop an accurate emergency response/9-1-1 map, assess community needs and opportunities, and let the Tribe and the residents of the reservation tell their own story through their responses to questions developed by tribal program staff. Locally hired staff and interns from Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwa Community College will be collecting data from Native and non-Native households included in the random sample (approx. 40% of housing units on the reservation) for the next 8 weeks, and paper forms will be mailed to tribal members living off-reservation in Sawyer County. An online form will also be made available to participating households.
