This online Digital Needs and Readiness Assessment takes about 10-15 minutes to complete and helps identify key steps that should be taken prior to beginning a broadband infrastructure project. When taken by several members of a leadership team, the assessment can also assist in starting a discussion about perspectives and priorities.

Once you have completed the assessment, you will receive a summary report immediately by email. You next may choose to participate in SNG’s Community Readiness Assessment that provides the full set of readiness and sustainability criteria, along with a rigorous analysis of perspectives and priorities from local leaders – identifying where there is alignment or divergence. There is a cost associated with the Community Readiness Assessment, but Next Century Cities members will receive a $500 discount. SNG has also agreed to donate $1,000 to Next Century Cities for every member that participates in the Community Readiness Assessment.

All data reported is owned by you, the respondent. SNG will be able to report the data only in the aggregate. Please feel free to reach out with any questions.
