This program (short title: RCORP-MAT Access) provides
funding to establish new Medication-Assisted Treatment
(MAT) access points and increase capacity for the
provision of sustainable MAT services in high-risk rural
communities, thus increasing access to evidence-based
treatment for individuals with opioid use disorder (OUD)
living in rural areas.
While the program supports MAT for the treatment of OUD,
recipients are encouraged to target alcohol use disorder
(AUD) if the need exists.
Program goals include:
- Establish new MAT access points to provide both
medications and supportive services to individuals with
OUD and/or AUD in rural communities
- Enhance the MAT workforce through recruitment,
training, and the development of peer mentorship networks
- Build community capacity and infrastructure to
support more effective and efficient MAT service
- Ensure sustainability of the new MAT access points
through improved billing and coding, as well as
enrollment of eligible individuals into health insurance
Proposals that include health disparity populations, such
as racial and ethnic minorities, people who are pregnant,
adolescents and youth, LGBTQ+, veterans,
socioeconomically disadvantaged populations, the elderly,
individuals with disabilities, are also encouraged.
Applicants must be domestic public or private, nonprofit
or for-profit organizations, including federally
recognized tribes and tribal organizations.
Proposed MAT access points must be located in a HRSA-designated
rural area and cannot currently provide MAT as a
