The Rural Communities Opioid Response Program (RCORP) is a multi-year initiative by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) aimed at reducing the morbidity and mortality of substance use disorder (SUD), including opioid use disorder (OUD), in high-risk rural communities.
This funding opportunity, RCORP Implementation, will advance RCORP’s overall goal by strengthening and expanding SUD/OUD prevention, treatment, and recovery services to enhance rural residents’ ability to access treatment and move towards recovery. In alignment with the HHS Five-Point Strategy, and as part of the RCORP initiative, RCORP-Implementation award recipients will implement a set of core SUD/OUD prevention, treatment, and recovery activities. These activities incorporate evidence-based, promising, and innovative approaches proven to reduce the morbidity and mortality associated with opioid use disorder including overdose, such as naloxone distribution and other harm reduction services, and Medication-Assisted Treatment.
Applications are due March 12, 2021.
