This program (Short title: RCORP-NAS) provides grants for projects designed to reduce the incidence and impact of Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome in rural communities by improving systems of care, family supports, and social determinants of health. RCORP is an initiative with the goal of reducing the morbidity and mortality of substance use disorder (SUD), including opioid use disorder (OUD), in high-risk rural communities.

RCORP-NAS award recipients should form multi-sectoral consortia to achieve the following goals within a HRSA-designated rural service area:

  • Reduce structural- and systems-level barriers (such as transportation challenges, limited workforce, and reimbursement issues) to:
    • Increase access to behavioral healthcare, especially substance use disorders, including opioid use disorder (SUD/OUD), services for rural pregnant and postpartum persons and their families
    • Address community risk factors and social determinants of health
  • Strengthen the quality and sustainability of behavioral healthcare services for rural pregnant and postpartum persons and their families by implementing coordinated, evidence-based, trauma-informed, family-centered SUD/OUD and other services

Eligible applicants are all domestic public and private entities, including:

  • Nonprofit organizations
  • For-profit entities
  • Faith-based and community-based organizations
  • Tribes
  • Tribal organizations

The target population is pregnant women, mothers, and women of childbearing age who have a history of, or who are at risk for, SUD/OUD and their children, families, and caregivers who reside in HRSA-designated rural areas.
