Evaluation of the North Dakota State Opioid Response Grant
The North Dakota State Opioid Response Grant (SORG) was
initiated in July 2017 by the Substance Abuse and Mental
Health Services Administration and is administered by the
North Dakota Department of Human Services (DHS). The
project's goal is to reduce opioid related deaths through
increasing access to treatment and recovery services,
awareness and prevention, and reducing stigma surrounding
opioid use disorder.
The Center for Rural Health is conducting evaluation of
the North Dakota SORG through:
Collaboration with DHS on collecting and reporting
Collaboration with DHS, community grantees, and other
vendors to collect and analyze treatment and recovery
Development and implementation of data collection
plan for tracking objectives.
Monitoring and tracking of performance measures
specific to grant activities.
Review of performance measures, assessment of
progress, and sharing recommendations to improve
management of grant projects.
Collaboration with the North Dakota State
Epidemiological Outcomes Workgroup.
