Engaging and Empowering Vulnerable Families and Communities to Prevent Opioid Use Disorder and Overdose
The Foundation for Opioid Response Efforts (FORE) will provide grants for projects to develop, adapt, and/or evaluate promising evidence-based models of family and community based prevention for opioid use disorder (OUD) and overdose for children and families, especially those at highest risk.

- Addressing and managing pain, emotional distress, and trauma: Help children and adolescents develop healthy ways of responding to pain with interventions or supports that may be based in schools, homes, or communities
FORE has awarded many grants in rural areas, and has published an issue brief on expanding OUD treatment in rural areas.
