Purpose

The Rural Communities Opioid Response Program - Technical Assistance (RCORP-TA) program will provide funding for a single entity to provide technical assistance services to HRSA's Rural Communities Opioid Response Program grantees as they work to address issues around opioid use disorder (OUD). TA efforts should enhance the capacity of multi-sector consortiums at the community, county, state, and/or regional levels, with a goal of reducing the morbidity and mortality of opioid overdoses in high-risk rural communities.

Program activities could involve any of the following activities, among other things:

  • Develop and implement a strategic plan to provide TA to consortiums funded through the RCORP program
  • Synthesize resources to develop and strengthen consortiums
  • Develop training and tools to support analysis of opportunities and gaps in the workforce and service delivery (to include telehealth) associated with OUD prevention, treatment, and recovery
  • Develop training and tools to educate RCORP award recipients and facilitate their strategic plan development addressing gaps in OUD prevention, treatment, and recovery
  • Identify and develop training and tools associated with workforce recruitment and retention targeted to rural communities to build provider capacity to address OUD issues
  • Assist RCORP award recipients in collaborating with the National Health Service Corps (NHSC) to recruit providers
  • Assist with the identification and development of evidence-based practice models relating to OUD prevention, treatment, and recovery
  • Assist with the identification and development of sustainability practices for consortiums
  • Assist with the identification and development of program measures for award recipients for the RCORP grants
  • Assist in building consortiums' capacity and infrastructure to collect data to participate in program-wide evaluation activities
  • Educate RCORP award recipients about other available federal and non-federal funding and resources to prepare them to leverage those resources, aid coordination, and avoid duplication of program efforts
  • Educate rural stakeholders of national and state laws associated with OUD prevention, treatment, and recovery
  • Assist RCORP award recipients in developing educational materials for individuals and families about OUD prevention, treatment, and recovery
  • Evaluating the impact of the TA
  • Other areas to be determined in collaboration with HRSA
