Communities funded under the Rhode Island Partnership for Success (PFS) are required to conduct an assessment of population needs related to RI’s priority targeted problems of underage drinking and marijuana use among 12-17 year olds. This needs assessment guide provides tools and resources for communities as they undertake this process. The guide itself is divided into two (2) sections: quantitative data sources for alcohol/underage drinking and for youth marijuana use; and, qualitative data sources for the same.
