RCORP-Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) Access

RCORP–Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) Access award recipients receive up to $1,000,000 per year over the three-year period of performance to:

  • Establish new MAT access points to provide both medications and supportive services to individuals with opioid use disorder (OUD) and/or alcohol use disorder (AUD) in rural communities;
  • Enhance the MAT workforce through recruitment, training, and the development of peer mentorship networks;
  • Build community capacity and infrastructure to support more effective and efficient MAT service provision; and
  • Ensure sustainability of the new MAT access points through improved billing and coding, as well as enrollment of eligible individuals into health insurance.

Applicants are encouraged to include populations that have historically suffered from poorer health outcomes, health disparities, and other inequities as compared to the rest of the population.
