Federal SUD/OUD Resources and Funding Opportunities in Support of Rural Communities
The federal government has developed and implemented a multiagency response to the national opioid epidemic which has the nation experiencing more than 130 opioid-related deaths a day. Specific to the rural opioid epidemic, multiple federal agencies have invested significant resources in health and infrastructure programs in support of rural communities’ efforts to address the opioid crisis at a local level. This Federal Resources session will provide attendees with specific information on the numerous federal programs that target rural communities and tribes directly or through the support of state programs, policies, and resources encompassing prevention, treatment, recovery, engaging law enforcement and corrections, and enhancing workforce.
