RCORP Project for Franklin County

In our continuing effort to address opioid misuse, NCADA has secured funding for an RCORP (Rural Communities Opioid Response Planning) project from the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration.

This project will focus on enhancing Franklin County’s response to opioids and opioid use disorder. Our proposal includes a one year planning project to develop strategic and workforce plans to address gaps in the areas of prevention, treatment, and recovery service.

A consortium of community organizations will lead the planning efforts. The initial consortium members include NCADA, Mercy Healthcare, Foundations for Franklin County, Franklin County Health Department, and the New Haven Ambulance District.

We’ll be collaborating closely with our partners in order to develop solutions from all sides.
