Purpose

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.

Grantees will be required to implement a set of SUD/OUD prevention, treatment, and recovery strategies that best address the needs identified in their service areas and target populations. These strategies are outlined in Section IV.2. of the application instructions.
