Rural Substance Use Disorder Impact Program. The Delta Region Community Health Systems Development Program aims to enhance health care delivery in the Delta Region through intensive technical assistance to providers in select rural communities, including Critical Access Hospitals, small rural hospitals, Rural Health Clinics, and other healthcare organizations. The Delta States Rural Development Network Program funds organizations located in the eight Delta States, which include Alabama, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Missouri. Awardees in these areas aim to promote population health, through the planning, implementation, and the development of integrated health care networks. In addition, eligible entities participate in the networks to achieve efficiencies, expand access to care, as well as to coordinate, and improve the quality of essential health care services. The Delta Region Rural Health Workforce Training Program aims to addresses the ongoing need in healthcare facilities for trained administrative support or business operations professionals in rural communities through the development of Strategic Networks that support recruitment, formal training, certification, and placement of students. The Rural Health Network Development Program aims to support mature, integrated rural health care networks that have combined the functions of the entities participating in the network in order to address the health care needs of the targeted rural community. Awardees will combine the functions of the entities participating in the network to address the following statutory charges: (i) achieve efficiencies; (ii) expand access, coordinate, and improve the quality of essential health care services; and (iii) strengthen the rural health care system as a whole. The Rural Health Network Development Planning Program assists in the development of an integrated health care network, specifically for entities that do not have a history of formal collaborative efforts. Health care networks can be an effective strategy to help smaller rural health care providers and health care service organizations align resources and strategies, achieve economies of scale and efficiency, and address challenges more effectively as a group than as single providers. The Rural Health Care Coordination Program aims to support rural health consortiums/networks aiming to achieving the overall goals of improving access, delivery, and quality of care through the application of care coordination strategies in rural communities. In order to achieve the goal of the Care Coordination Program, applicants are required to coordinate the health care delivery services in rural communities through the following four focus areas: Collaboration, Leadership and Workforce, Improved Outcomes, and Sustainability. The Rural Maternity and Obstetrics Management Strategies Program aims to improve access to and continuity of maternal and obstetrics care in rural communities. Rural Maternal Health Networks will develop and test strategies concerning rural regional approaches to risk appropriate care, a network approach to coordinating a continuum of care, leveraging telehealth and specialty care, and financial sustainability. Networks include rural or critical access hospitals, health centers (FQHC), Level III (Subspecialty Care) or Level IV (Regional Perinatal Health Care Centers) facilities, local social services (such as state Home Visiting and Healthy Start programs), and the state Medicaid agency, as partners. The Rural Health Care Services Outreach Program provides support to rural communities to expand and enhance the delivery of health care services through a strong consortium of partners. Outreach projects utilize evidence-based or promising practice models to implement innovative approaches that address community identified health needs, improve population health, demonstrate health outcomes and sustainability. For this time, the program also includes the Healthy Rural Hometown Initiative (HRHI) to address the underlying factors that are driving growing rural health disparities related to the five leading causes of avoidable death (heart disease, cancer, unintentional injury/substance use disorder, chronic lower respiratory disease, and stroke). The Rural Northern Border Region Planning Program assists in the planning and identifying of key rural health issues in the rural Northern Border Regional Commission (NBRC) service area. The grant program supports planning activities to identify key rural health issues, assess rural health challenges, and engage in strategic planning activities to inform rural health plans across the northern border region. The ultimate goal of the program is to help underserved rural communities identify and better address their health care needs. The Rural Public Health Workforce Training Network Program expands public health capacity by establishing rural health networks to support health care job development, training and placement within rural communities in the following workforce tracks: Community Health Support, Health IT and Telehealth; Community Para-Medicine; and Case Management Staff and Respiratory Therapists. . The goal of the program is to help enhance clinical and operational capacity in order to meet increased demand to adequately address the population health needs of its rural communities affected by COVID-19. . The Rural Public Health Workforce Training Network Technical Assistance Program provides technical assistance (TA) to rural health care networks engaging in public health workforce training activities that support health care job development, training and placement. . The Rural Northern Border Region Healthcare Support Program supports rural communities within the Northern Border Regional Commission (NBRC) service area in their efforts to enhance access to health (including behavioral health); improve recruitment and retention of health care providers and assist rural hospitals and clinics in their efforts to take part in health care value efforts.

The program focuses on expanding treatment options and enhancing treatment and recovery capacity in rural communities. By expanding the options for treatment across the care spectrum, this initiative will help rural residents access treatment and move towards recovery. The Rural Communities Opioid Response Program- Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) Expansion advances 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. The Rural Communities Opioid Response Program- Technical Assistance provides technical assistance (TA) support for rural communities engaging in activities to combat opioid use disorder (OUD). The TA efforts will enhance the organizational and infrastructural capacity of multi-sector consortiums at the community, county, state, and/or regional levels. The overall goal is the reduction of morbidity and mortality associated with opioid overdoses in high-risk rural communities. The Rural Communities Opioid Response Program-Psychostimulant Support aims to strengthen and expand prevention, treatment, and recovery services for rural individuals who misuse psychostimulants to enhance their ability to access treatment and move towards recovery. Over the course of a three-year period of performance, RCORP-PS award recipients will implement a set of core psychostimulant use disorder prevention, treatment, and recovery activities. The Small Health Care Provider Quality Improvement Program aims to provide support to rural primary care providers for the planning and implementation of quality improvement activities. The ultimate goal of the program is to improve the quality and delivery of rural health care services through promoting the development of evidence-based approaches to the quality and delivery of coordinated care in the primary care setting. Additional objectives of the program include: improved health outcomes for patients; enhanced chronic disease management; and better engagement of patients and their caregivers.
