Building Communities of Recovery (Short Title: BCOR) provides grants to mobilize resources within and outside of the recovery community to increase the prevalence and quality of long-term recovery support from substance abuse and addiction.

Required activities include:

  1. Peer recovery support services designed and delivered by people who have experienced both drug/alcohol addiction and recovery
  2. Non-clinical recovery support services that directly assist individuals and families to recover from alcohol or drug problems

Lists of allowable activities and other expectations are provided in the application instructions.

Special consideration for funding will be given to rural applicants, including applicants serving areas with an age-adjusted rate of drug overdose deaths that is above the national average and areas with a shortage of prevention and treatment services.


Eligible applicants are recovery community organizations (RCOs) that have been designated as nonprofit organizations in states, territories, or tribes and are controlled and managed by members of the addiction recovery community.
