Framework for Addiction Analysis and Community Transformation

FAACT is Virginia’s premier cross-secretariat data-sharing initiative. By combining previously siloed data from different agencies, secretariats, localities, social services, public safety and corrections, drug courts, community coalitions, and private healthcare systems.

FAACT was built as part of Virginia’s response to the opioid epidemic and quickly expanded to help the Commonwealth track and combat the spread of COVID-19. Now FAACT has expanded with more than 20 datasets and gives local community leaders across disciplines information to help them proactively and effectively respond to their community’s needs.

Data resources included in the FAACT project reside in the Commonwealth Data Trust managed by the Office of Data Governance and Analytics and the Data Governance Council comprised of participating organizations and agencies. The Data Trust ensures proper custody, protection, documentation, and dissemination of data resources through a Data Trust Agreement that data FAACT participants enter into with the Chief Data Officer, which qualifies acceptable uses and rules for data sharing.


Organizations across the commonwealth are using FAACT to improve outcomes for people in their communities.
