NCWorks Substance Use Disorder Recovery Grant
This grant is designed to further implement and enhance programs to assist local communities impacted by the opioid epidemic and other substance use disorders (SUDS). The goal is to increase workforce participation and job retention of persons in recovery through an increase in education, knowledge, and workforce skills and by ensuring they are ready to work. Grant activities could also include direct support from case managers and wraparound services (e.g., transportation, childcare, food stabilization) to help remove barriers to employment. Customers served via the grant should be actively working towards a goal of employment/training.
