Federal Funding/Resource Guide to Help Address Rural Substance Abuse & Opioid Misuse
The USDA Rural Development and the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy launched the Rural Resource Guide to Help Communities Address Substance Use Disorder and Opioid Misuse. This new resource is a first-of-its-kind, one-stop-shop for rural leaders looking for Federal funding and partnership opportunities to support local response efforts.
The Rural Resource Guide to Help Address Substance Use Disorder and Opioid Misuse is the second tool announced this month in USDA’s Community Opioid Misuse Toolbox – a suite of essential tools supporting grassroots strategies to address the opioid epidemic. Earlier this month, USDA launched the Community Assessment Tool, an interactive database to help community leaders assess how and why the opioid epidemic is impacting their regions. USDA’s Community Opioid Misuse Toolbox is free and available to the public. It can be accessed on USDA’s Rural Opioid Misuse Webpage.
