Cortland Counts: An Assessment of Health and 

Well-being in Cortland County

 

Since 2001, five local organizations and 

agencies have collaborated as the

Community Assessment Team* (CAT), to

provide assets and needs assessments on

the health and well-being of our community.

 

These resources are published in two forms: 

the annual Cortland Counts Report Card,

and the more comprehensive Cortland

Counts Report, issued every 4 years.

under-served, and/or emerging needs.

10 Kennedy Parkway, Cortland, at several local businesses, and at all libraries within Cortland County.
