The Chapel Hill Building Integrated Communities Project (Chapel Hill BIC) is a two-year collaboration between the Town of Chapel Hill, local community groups and residents, and the statewide Building Integrated Communities program at UNC-Chapel Hill. Chapel Hill BIC is a community planning project, which means that community members and government staff are working together to develop town plans. The goals are to:
- Share and build knowledge about Chapel Hill’s foreign-born and refugee communities
- Improve relationships and communication with foreign-born “newcomers” to Chapel Hill
- Support resident participation in local government
