North Carolina Local Governments and the Opioid Crisis: A Collective Impact Approach to Making Policy and Changing Lives

To achieve the collaborative, multi-faceted approach so crucial to tackling the opioid crisis in North Carolina, the UNC School of Government is launching an intensive two-year collaborative learning model that will provide direct support to ten North Carolina communities interested in enacting an integrated and innovative policy and practice response to their local opioid crises.

This project, which will be coordinated by the School’s ncIMPACT initiative, will complement health and policy efforts at the state and local levels by working with communities that are ready to implement best practices. Local governments are the front lines of policy implementation. Using the team-oriented approach described, this project will build upon previous and ongoing efforts “to get arms around” the opioid crisis.

Each participating community will receive funds for a project manager as well as implementation funds.

This program is produced in partnership with the generosity of Blue Cross NC. For more information about this partnership, click here.
