Funding Opportunity: Rural Communities Opioid Response Program (RCORP)-Implementation

Application due: April 24, 2020

Successful RCORP-Implementation award recipients will receive $1 million for a three-year period of performance to enhance and expand substance use disorder (SUD), including opioid use disorder (OUD), service delivery in high-risk rural communities.  Award recipients will implement a set of core SUD/OUD prevention, treatment, and recovery activities that align with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) Five-Point Strategy to Combat the Opioid Crisis.

Award recipients are encouraged to leverage workforce recruitment and retention programs like the National Health Service Corps (NHSC) and learn more about how to become an NHSC site and NHSC site benefits.  NHSC-approved sites provide outpatient, primary healthcare services to people in health professional shortage areas.

Eligible Applicants:

All domestic public and private entities, nonprofit and for-profit, are eligible to apply and all services must be provided in HRSA-designated rural areas (as defined by the Rural Health Grants Eligibility Analyzer).  Applicants do not need to be current or former RCORP-Planning award recipients to apply for this funding opportunity.
