NCGrowth is partnering with the ncIMPACT Initiative at the UNC School of Government on a project to assess the short term impacts of local factors (e.g., COVID19 testing availability) and local government actions (e.g., small business grant funds) that aim to help people feel safe engaging in activities that improve the economy. This project is supported by the North Carolina Policy Collaboratory at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with funding from the North Carolina Coronavirus Relief Fund, established and appropriated by the North Carolina General Assembly.

A series of webinars will be offered to share what we learn, and collect your input, as the project progresses.

Webinar Dates: Oct. 28, Nov. 18, and Jan. 27. All webinars begin at 2 p.m. EST.

In these webinars we will share data analysis, case studies, resources, and strategies designed to assist with local economic recovery efforts, as well as solicit your ideas regarding additional data needed and questions for which you need answers to lead and guide our state’s recovery.

In addition, the project team will be sharing out findings through a searchable database of resources and in-depth case studies on local responses. For sample case studies available prior to the pandemic, explore the Homegrown Tools site.
