Happy Tuesday everyone!
We wanted to clarify expectations regarding the Gambling & Gaming Brick and Mortar Scan which was recently shared on the Portal. From conversations with CSB staff, we know that some folks have begun conducting retailer visits as part of their larger prevention work. As a result of this understanding, the decision was made to share this tool in advance of the upcoming Needs Assessment training that will occur as part of the BG Evaluation Summit in late October to allow folks to begin this aspect of the Needs Assessment work without duplicating efforts/visits. There is, however, no expectation for folks to being conducting these visits in advance of the Needs Assessment training, at which point more guidance will be provided regarding all of the Needs Assessment work.
