Department of Health and Human Services: Seeking Applications for Rural Health Opioid Program

Deadline: 21 July 2017

The Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration is currently seeking applications for Rural Health Opioid program that promotes rural health care services outreach by expanding the delivery of opioid related health care services to rural communities.

The program will reduce the morbidity and mortality related to opioid overdoses in rural communities through the development of broad community consortiums to prepare individuals with opioid-use disorder (OUD) to start treatment, implement care coordination practices to organize patient care activities, and support individuals in recovery through the enhancement of behavioral counsellingand peer support activities. This program will bring together health care providers (i.e. local health departments, hospitals, primary care practices, and substance abuse treatment providers) and entities such as social service and faith-based organizations, law enforcement, and other community-based groups to respond multifaceted to the opioid epidemic in a rural community.

The program supports 3 years of funding. This program incorporates a range of objectives to respond comprehensively to the opioid crisis within rural communities.  Consortiums will work towards identifying individuals at-risk of overdose and guide them towards recovery by providing outreach and education on locally available treatment options and support services.
