Rural Community Opioid Response Program: Planning Grant

Funded by the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy, the Center for Rural Health will work with dedicated consortium members in North Dakota to develop and strengthen multi-sector collaborations that will lead to targeted interventions addressing specific opioid use disorder (OUD) prevention, treatment, or recovery needs in high-risk rural North Dakota communities. The consortium and activities proposed will focus on:

  • Developing partnerships
  • Reviewing current reports, initiatives, and projects to inform discussion and planning
  • Identifying specific issues related to implementing OUD treatment, prevention, and recovery programs in rural communities
  • Creating informal community networks focused on shared solutions and/or interventions
  • Developing a strategic plan for rural communities struggling with OUD in the state

During the course of the 12-month funding period (September 30, 2018 – September 29, 2019), consortium members and CRH staff will also work to identify a plan for sustaining the activities of the consortium and the proposed strategies identified to specifically target rural communities.
