The HRSA funding will assess the efficacy of rural community opioid response and RCORP-based evaluation tools and resources for use in rural communities, and to inform future rural health initiatives.

The Federal Office of Rural Health Policy (FORHP) within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has opened $3 million per year for up to four years in Rural Communities Opioid Response Program Evaluation grants.

The purpose of this cooperative agreement is to evaluate the impact of Rural Community Opioid Response Program (RCORP) initiatives which currently include the RCORP-Planning, RCORP-Implementation and RCORP-Technical Assistance (RCORP-TA) activities, and to develop valuable RCORP-based evaluation tools and resources for use in rural communities and to inform future rural health initiatives. The period of performance is September 1, 2019 through August 31, 2023.

On March 28, FORHP will host a webinar from 12 – 1:30 p.m. EST. Attendees can dialin by calling 888-469-3074 and entering participant code: 4647545.
