Two County Programs Awarded $1,000 For Excellence in Innovation

9/5/2019
Assessor's Office Wins Award

​Congratulations to the County Assessor’s Office (CAO) and Mecklenburg County Public Health (MCPH) for being recognized by the North Carolina Association of County Commissioners (NCACC) at their annual Excellence in Innovation Awards Program.

The CAO was recognized for the “2019 Revaluation Community Engagement Program” which included 168 engagement sessions from 2017 to the present for community groups, neighborhood associations, faith organizations, and other civic groups. The four-phase approach used a dedicated website, community engagement events, technical documents, and media outlets to improve outreach to the community by offering easy to locate and read information, answering questions, and being accessible to our customers was the only way to create confidence in the community for the 2019 Revaluation.

MCPH was recognized for their “Model of Collaboration to Increase PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) Availability” which involved a 24-month pilot to provide PrEP to at least 320 individuals at high risk for HIV and are uninsured through contracts with community partners who provide clinical services to the population at high risk. Partner providers include Ballantyne Family Medicine/Amity Medical Group, The C.W. Williams Community Health Center, Inc., Eastowne Family Physicians, Quality Comprehensive Health Care Center Powerhouse Project, and Rosedale Assistance & Opportunities (RAO).

Each program was awarded $1,000 to continue the work of their respective programs.
