The Rural Communities Opioid Response Program (RCORP) is a multi-year initiative by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) that supports grantees working to address behavioral healthcare issues in their communities.

This podcast focuses on the topics and issues most relevant for RCORP grantees nationwide.
