The Rural Communities Opioid Response Program (RCORP) - Evaluation provides funding for a single cooperative agreement to evaluate the impact of RCORP initiatives and to develop evaluation tools and resources for use in rural communities to inform future community-led rural health initiatives. Evaluation should assess RCORP's effects on health outcomes, sustainability, capacity, and access to ensure the strategies and methods maintain positive outcomes.

Program goals include:

  • Analyze, synthesize, and disseminate data and information to relevant stakeholders regarding the extent to which the RCORP initiative has improved healthcare in rural areas
  • Strengthen the capacity of RCORP award recipients to collect, report, and disseminate data to enhance the quality and sustainability of their behavioral healthcare activities
  • Enhance rural communities' ability to anticipate, prepare for, and respond to emerging behavioral healthcare issues, including substance use disorder (SUD)/opioid use disorder (OUD)-related issues that would further negatively affect rural communities

RCORP programs currently within the scope of the RCORP evaluation include:


Eligible applicants are domestic public or private, nonprofit or for-profit organizations including  faith-based and community-based organizations, tribes, and tribal organizations.
