The Rural Communities Opioid Response Program (RCORP) is a multi-year Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) initiative aimed at reducing the morbidity and mortality of substance use disorder (SUD), including opioid use disorder (OUD) in high-risk rural communities.

Iowa Healthcare Collaborative (IHC) led the Iowa OUD Consortium through a one-year planning grant and is facilitating the Iowa OUD Consortium’s implementation of a set of core SUD/OUD prevention, treatment and recovery activities. The Iowa OUD Consortium will pilot implementation activities in three high-risk Iowa counties and spread identified best practices statewide.
