New COVID-19 Research Funding Opportunity
The Collaboratory is partnering with North Carolina Central University and the UNC Injury Prevention Research Center to request research and development proposals that can assist local efforts to abate and remediate the opioid crisis across the state.
A $1.9 million appropriation from the North Carolina General Assembly to address the opioid crisis through treatment recovery, harm reduction and other strategies has made this research opportunity possible.
The primary goal of this RFP is to generate practical end products that can be used by local governments and/or the communities they serve to address the consequences of the opioid crisis.
