Although you must complete and submit the online version of the Promoting Active
Communities assessment form to be considered for an award, a downloadable print version may be
useful to you.

corrections and other advantages offered online. However, it provides a paper copy to community
teams should this be useful for data collection efforts.

(and would not complete a PAC award application) but who are interested in the assessment. Lastly,the print
materials are useful for those who want to check to see what PAC is all about before they make a commitment
to completing it.
