The RCORP -TA award recipient will provide resources and expertise in support of the execution of the following focus areas:

  1. Prevention: reducing the occurrence of OUD among new and at-risk users as well as fatal opioid-related overdoses through community and provider education and harm reduction measures including the strategic placement of overdose reversing devices, such as naloxone;
  2. Treatment: implementing or expanding access to evidence-based practices for opioid addiction/OUD treatment such as medication-assisted treatment (MAT), including developing strategies to eliminate or reduce treatment costs to uninsured and underinsured patients; and
  3. Recovery: expanding peer recovery and treatment options to help people start and stay in recovery. The RCORP-TA initiative is part of a multi-year, $130.0 million opioid focused effort by HRSA that will include: improving access to and recruitment of new substance use disorder providers; building sustainable treatment resources; increasing the use of telehealth; establishing cross-sector community partnerships; implementing new models of care, including integrated behavioral health; and providing technical assistance.

The RCORP -TA award recipient will provide in-depth TA for planning and implementation to HRSA’s Rural Communities Opioid Response Program award recipients. The RCORP-Planning program will seek to reduce morbidity and mortality associated with opioid overdoses in high-risk rural communities by strengthening the organizational and infrastructure capacity of multi-sector consortiums to address one or more of the focus areas of prevention, treatment, and recovery of OUD.
