The Rural Opioid Overdose Reversal Grant Program awards funding to develop innovative community partnerships that will reduce the incidences of morbidity and mortality related to opioid usage in rural areas.

Partnerships must work to create access to emergency devices intended to rapidly reverse the effects of overdoses, and to train healthcare professionals and emergency responders in the use of those devices.

Proposals should also show plans for care coordination and the referral of individuals to appropriate substance abuse treatment centers, where care coordination and communication is facilitated by a team of qualified healthcare providers.


Eligible applicants include community partnerships comprised of local emergency responders, and other local nonprofit and for-profit entities involved in the prevention and treatment of opioid overdoses. One organization in the partnership will be the lead, submit the application, and have responsibility for all aspects of award management.

The lead applicant must be located in a rural area or in a rural census tract of an urban county, and all services must be provided in a rural county or census tract.
