Purpose

Rural Opioids Technical Assistance Grants (short title: ROTA) provide funding for existing USDA Cooperative Extensions grantees to develop and disseminate training and technical assistance (T/TA) for rural communities on addressing opioid issues affecting these communities.

Required activities include:

  • Build upon the current Cooperative Extensions project to provide expanded evidence-based training on opioid prevention, treatment, or recovery
  • Identify the SAMHSA State Opioid Response or Tribal Opioid Response providers in the jurisdiction and ensure these organizations are included in T/TA dissemination plans
  • Provide up-to-date resources and information on the prevention and treatment of opioid misuse such that individuals, families, communities, and practitioners can easily access them and understand the issues related to opioid misuse
  • Provide publicly available on-demand virtual training and up-to-date information on the prevention or treatment of opioid misuse
  • Provide linkages to SAMHSA’s State Targeted Response TA teams
