|Target Population and Population Needs|
What is a target population?
This is a description of the population you serve. As specifically as possible, identify the people who will receive your services. Examples include “any parent living in our county with a child under 3”, or “any non-custodial parents residing in our town”, “All parents of children with disabilities living in the County” and “parents referred by the local CPS agency due to risk of out-of-home placements.”
What are population needs?
What are the participants’ needs that this program intends to address? What social problem will your services help mediate? Example; “We serve newly arrived immigrant families who are unfamiliar with the laws and customs in the United States. They need to understand the social, educational and medical services available to their families and the laws that are related to parenting.”
