Gov. Roy Cooper announced $1.5 million in grant awards to 12 community partners to implement projects to combat the opioid crisis in the state.

The projects fall in line with the goals of the NC Opioid Action Plan developed with community partners to combat the opioid crisis.

The non-recurring grants of up to $150,000 will come through the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and are meant to enable partner organizations to implement activities in their communities to improve access to harm reduction, treatment and recovery programs.

“Community efforts to turn the tide on the opioid crisis deserve our support,” Cooper said. “These grants are another example of the collaborative effort we need to fight opioid overdoses, save lives, and connect people to treatment statewide.”
