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 rural communities at the highest risk for SUD. This funding opportunity, RCORP-Medication Assisted Treatment Expansion (RCORP-MAT Expansion), will advance RCORP’s overall goal by establishing and/or expanding MAT in eligible hospitals, health clinics, or tribal organizations in high-risk rural communities. RCORP-MAT Expansion aims to increase the number of access points where individuals living in rural communities with OUD can receive evidence-based treatment. Additionally, recognizing that MAT patients may have other clinical and social service needs, RCORP-MAT Expansion requires that eligible entities provide and/or coordinate complementary services (e.g., provision of or referral to other SUD/OUD and mental health services, assistance with transportation, etc.), as outlined in the Program-Specific Instructions section of this NOFO. For the purposes of this funding opportunity, HRSA defines MAT as the use of U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved medications, in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies, to provide a “whole-patient” approach to the treatment of substance use disorders.1
