New Grant Opportunity Focuses on Addressing Opioids in Rural Communities
The Health Resources and Services Administration’s (HRSA) Federal Office of Rural Health Policy (FORHP) plans to award up to 75 grants to rural communities as part of a new Rural Communities Opioid Response Planning initiative. Awardees will receive up to $200,000 for one year to develop plans to implement opioid use disorder prevention, treatment, and recovery interventions designed to reduce opioid overdoses among rural populations. The initiative focuses on HRSA designated rural communities at high risk for substance use disorder. The lead applicant must be part of a group that includes at least three other partners that are committed to forming a consortium or part of an established consortium.
