Rural Opioid Overdose Reversal Grant Program: This announcement solicits applications for the Rural Opioid Overdose Reversal (ROOR) Grant Program. 

The purpose of the ROOR program is to reduce the incidences of morbidity and mortality related to opioid overdoses in rural communities through the purchase and placement of emergency devices used to rapidly reverse the effects of opioid overdoses and the training of licensed healthcare professionals and emergency responders on the use of opioid devices.  Community partnerships are an important component of this program and can be comprised of local emergency responders as well as other local non-profit and for-profit entities involved in the prevention and treatment of opioid overdoses.  In addition, care coordination is essential to efforts in reducing incidences of morbidity and mortality related to opioid overdoses.  As a result, this funding opportunity announcement is seeking innovative approaches that involve broad community partnerships which may include referral of individuals to appropriate substance abuse treatment centers where care coordination and communication is facilitated by a team of qualified health care providers. 

The ROOR goals are to:

1)      Purchase naloxone and opioid overdose reversal devices and increase the availability in rural areas through strategic placement;

2)      Train licensed healthcare professionals and others using the devices to recognize the signs of opioid overdose, administer naloxone, administer basic cardiopulmonary life support, report results, and provide appropriate transport to a hospital or clinic for continued care after administration;

3)      Refer those with a drug dependency to appropriate substance abuse treatment centers where care coordination is provided by a team of providers; and

Demonstrate improved and measurable health outcomes, including but not limited to, reducing opioid overdose morbidity and mortality in rural areas.
