Module 3: Program Clearinghouse
The HRSA Federal
Office of Rural Health Policy has funded several programs in rural areas to implement and expand medication for
opioid use disorder (MOUD). The Rural Communities
Opioid Response Program (RCORP) focuses on planning, implementation, and expansion of programs to treat
substance use disorders, including opioid use disorder (OUD), in rural areas.
Examples of current RCORP grantees and other organizations that are implementing rural programs
