The Rural Communities Opioid Response Program – Behavioral Health Care Technical Assistance (RCORP-BHCTA) program will provide funding for a single entity to provide technical assistance services to HRSA's Rural Communities Opioid Response Program grantees working to address behavioral healthcare issues in their communities. TA efforts will support the development of multi-sector consortia and their capacity to plan, implement, and sustain programs and activities that improve access to quality behavioral healthcare services, including substance use disorder (SUD) and opioid use disorder (OUD) services, in rural areas.

Program goals include:

  • Provide TA to RCORP award recipients and other rural stakeholders seeking guidance on how to improve access to and quality of behavioral health care services, including SUD/OUD services
  • Identify, develop, promote, and maintain tools and resources that support rural communities' efforts to improve and sustain access to quality, equitable behavioral health care services
  • Develop and enhance meaningful partnerships with relevant stakeholders at the local, state, regional, and national level to promote exchange of information and promising practices that improve and sustain behavioral health care, including SUD/OUD services, in rural communities
  • Identify and strengthen rural communities' capacity to anticipate, prepare for, and respond to emerging behavioral health care issues, including SUD/OUD-related issues that would further negatively affect rural communities

Required activities related to each of the above goals can be found in the application instructions.


Eligible applicants include domestic public, private, nonprofit, and for-profit organizations, including tribes and tribal organizations, and faith-based and community-based organizations.
