The Rural Communities Opioid Response Program (RCORP) is a multi-year initiative by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) aimed at reducing the morbidity and mortality of substance use disorder (SUD), including opioid use disorder (OUD), in high risk rural communities. This notice announces the opportunity to apply for funding under RCORP-Psychostimulant Support (RCORP-PS). RCORP-PS will advance RCORP’s overall goal by strengthening and expanding prevention, treatment, and recovery services for rural individuals who misuse psychostimulants to enhance their ability to access treatment and move towards recovery.
Over the course of a three-year period of performance, RCORP-PS award recipients will implement a set of core psychostimulant use disorder prevention, treatment, and recovery activities, as outlined in Section IV.2. For the purposes of this funding opportunity, psychostimulants include methamphetamine and other illegal drugs, such as cocaine and ecstasy, as well as prescription stimulants for conditions such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) or depression.
The target population for this award are 1) individuals who are at risk for, have been diagnosed with, and/or are in treatment and/or recovery for psychostimulant use disorders; 2) their families and/or caregivers; and 3) other community members who reside in HRSA-designated rural areas.
