Health Resources and Services Administration’s Rural Communities Opioid Response Program - Overdose Response 
The Rural Communities Opioid Response Program (RCORP) is a multi-year initiative 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-Overdose Response, will advance RCORP’s overall goal by supporting immediate responses to the opioid crisis in rural areas. Over the course of a one-year period of performance, RCORP-Overdose Response recipients will address immediate needs in rural areas through improving access to, capacity for, and sustainability of prevention, treatment, and recovery services for substance use disorder (SUD). To achieve the purpose of the RCORP-Overdose Response program, applicants must select from a list of allowable activities. Please see Program Requirements and Expectations for additional information. Applicants are encouraged to give special consideration to the needs of rural populations that have historically suffered from poorer health outcomes or health disparities, as compared to the rest of the rural population. Examples of these rural populations include, but are not limited to: racial and ethnic minorities, people who are pregnant, adolescents and youth, LGBTQIA+ individuals, veterans, socioeconomically disadvantaged populations, the elderly, and individuals with disabilities.
