NC Department of Health and Human Services Healthy Opportunities Pilots Suspension

  • To support North Carolina health care and human service providers as they focus all available resources to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Department of Health and Human Services has suspended the evaluation of the Healthy Opportunities Lead Pilot Entity proposals. Addressing the unmet resource needs of North Carolinians remains a key priority of the Department. This suspension is related only to the Healthy Opportunities Pilots and does not impact other Healthy Opportunities efforts, such as NCCARE360 rollout and the Community Health Worker initiative.
