The Adult Needs Assessment
A functional needs assessment is a series of questions that asks what kinds of living supports a person needs to live independently in the community. Oregon has chosen the Adult Needs Assessment as its current tool.

Oregon’s assessment asks questions about what kinds of independent living supports you need, why you need them, and how often you need them. Once the assessment is completed, it determines certain services you are eligible for and how often you can access those services.
Note: Beginning in the summer of 2018, the ANA will be phased out as the new ONA (Oregon Needs Assessment) is phased in. Full details on the new tool here.
