Advisory Council

The Advisory Council for just for Year 1. Now it transitions into the Steering Committee and Statewide Meet the Need ACTion Network. 

For Year 1 of the Meet the Need NC initiative, the LAND program of MHTA established a 30+ person Advisory Council, bringing together agency leaders, family advocates, individuals with I/DD, research teams, and community organizations with a unified focus on educating, informing, and building grassroots efforts around meeting the unmet needs of individuals on the Medicaid Innovations Waiver waiting list in North Carolina.

Using a Collective Impact model, the Advisory Council – Year 1 helped to identify a common agenda for the Meet the Need NC initiative, sharing the ideal that a common agenda around issues is essential for systemic change in the I/DD Community in North Carolina. From our work together, we developed a Common Agenda infographic. Click to Download the English Version or Click to Download the Spanish Version
