Purpose

The Rural Communities Opioid Response Program (RCORP) – Psychostimulant Support provides funding to high-risk rural communities to enhance and expand prevention, treatment, and recovery services for rural residents who misuse psychostimulants, such as methamphetamine, cocaine, ecstasy, as well as prescription stimulants.

Program activities may include:

  • Prevention
    • Provide education to improve understanding of prevention, treatment, and recovery strategies for psychostimulant misuse and use disorders, and to reduce stigma associated with the disease
    • Identify and screen individuals at risk for psychostimulant misuse and use disorders and provide or make referrals to prevention, harm reduction, early intervention, treatment, and other social support services
    • Screen, provide information, and refer to treatment patients who use psychostimulants and who have infectious complications, including HIV, viral hepatitis, and endocarditis
  • Treatment and Recovery Core
    • Recruit, train, and mentor interdisciplinary teams of substance use disorder/opioid use disorder (SUD/OUD) clinical and social service and community-based providers who treat psychostimulant misuse and use disorders using evidence-based methods
    • Enhance discharge coordination for those in treatment and recovery and/or leaving the criminal justice system who need access to home and community-based services and social supports
    • Expand peer workforce and programming as interventionists in various settings, including hospitals, emergency departments, law enforcement departments, and others

Applicants are encouraged to include health disparity populations and those that suffer from poor health outcomes, such as racial and ethnic minorities, homeless populations, pregnant women, and adolescents, in their proposed activities.

Eligibility

The applicant must represent a consortium of four or more separately-owned entities. Consortium members may be located in urban or rural areas, but all activities supported by this program must exclusively target populations living in HRSA-designated rural counties or rural census tracts in urban counties. At least 50% of the members must physically be located in a HRSA-designated rural area.

Eligible applicants include public or private (nonprofit or for-profit) entities, including faith-based and community-based organizations, tribes, and tribal organizations located in the United States and United States Territories, who will serve rural communities at the highest risk for substance use disorder and who meet the specifications for an applicant organization and consortium.
