Essex County Community Survey

We would like to have input from Essex citizens as well as those who participate in Essex County Virginia Cooperative Extension (VCE) programs. In order to better serve the needs of Essex County, we ask that you please complete a short survey that will allow us to identify important needs and issues in Essex County, and allow us to develop Extension programs, as well as evaluate if our current programming efforts are meeting local needs.

The survey is part of a Situation Analysis that is conducted by VCE every four years in each county across the state. Your response is completely anonymous, and the survey can be accessed at the link below until January 1, 2019. Please help us and we appreciate your input and cooperation!
