Based in D.C., this is a once-in-a-generation chance to shape the way local governments spend the $26 billion opioid settlements. NACo is hiring a Senior Program Manager to run their Opioids Solutions Initiative, a nationwide effort to help local and state governments to maximize the impact of opioid settlement funds. NACo’s goal is to equip and catalyze counties to adopt the Johns Hopkins-coordinated Planning Principles for the Use of Opioid Settlement Funds; invest in effective evidence-based strategies to save lives, treat OUD and SUD, and prevent future misuse; and champion all of the above within their states and on the national stage. This individual will lead the development and creation of best practice tools, coordinate and execute a national learning series, and design activities for a leadership network(s) of county officials seeking to build their expertise and capacity to address the opioid crisis as part of their behavioral health strategic plans.
