Information Collection Request Title: Rural Communities Opioid Response Program Performance Measures, OMB No. 0906–xxxx, New. Abstract: The Rural Communities Opioid Response Program (RCORP) is a multi-initiative program that aims to: (1) Support treatment for and prevention of substance use disorder (SUD), including opioid use disorder (OUD); and (2) reduce morbidity and mortality associated with SUD, to include OUD, by improving access to and delivering prevention, treatment, and recovery support services to high-risk rural communities. To support this purpose, RCORP grant initiatives include: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: • RCORP-Planning grants to strengthen the capacity of multi-sector consortia to collaborate and develop plans to deliver SUD/OUD prevention, treatment, and recovery services in high-risk rural communities; • RCORP-Implementation grants to fund established networks and consortia to deliver SUD/OUD prevention, treatment, and recovery activities in high-risk rural communities; and • RCORP-Medication Assisted Treatment Expansion grants to enhance access to medication-assisted treatment within eligible hospitals, health clinics, or tribal organizations in high-risk rural communities. Additionally, all RCORP grant award recipients will be supported by five cooperative agreements: RCORPTechnical Assistance, which provides extensive technical assistance to award recipients; RCORP-Evaluation, which will evaluate the impact of the RCORP initiative on rural communities; and three RCORP-Centers of Excellence, which will disseminate best practices related to the treatment for and prevention of substance use disorders within rural communities. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: For this program, performance measures were developed to provide data on each RCORP initiative and to enable HRSA to provide aggregate program data required by Congress under the Government Performance and Results Act of 1993. These measures cover the principal topic areas of interest to the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy (FORHP), including: (a) Provision of, and referral to, substance use disorder treatment and support services; (b) substance use disorder prevention, treatment, and recovery process and outcomes; (c) education of health care providers and community members; (d) number of fatal and non-fatal opioid-related overdoses; and (e) consortium strength and sustainability. All measures will speak to FORHP’s progress toward meeting the goals set. Likely Respondents: The respondents will be the grant award recipients of the Rural Communities Opioid Response Program initiatives. Burden Statement: Burden in this context means the time expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose, or provide the information requested. This includes the time needed to review instructions; to develop, acquire, install, and utilize technology and systems for the purpose of collecting, validating, and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; to train personnel and to be able to respond to a collection of information; to search data sources; to complete and review the collection of information; and to transmit or otherwise disclose the information.

a multi-initiative program that aims to: (1) Support treatment for and 
prevention of substance use disorder (SUD), including opioid use 
disorder (OUD); and (2) reduce morbidity and mortality associated with

communities. To support this purpose, RCORP grant initiatives include:
     RCORP-Planning grants to strengthen the capacity of multi-
sector consortia to collaborate and develop plans to deliver SUD/OUD 
prevention, treatment, and recovery services in high-risk rural 
communities;
     RCORP-Implementation grants to fund established networks 
and consortia to deliver SUD/OUD prevention, treatment, and recovery 
activities in high-risk rural communities; and
     RCORP-Medication Assisted Treatment Expansion grants to 
enhance access to medication-assisted treatment within eligible 
hospitals, health clinics, or tribal organizations in high-risk rural 
communities.
    Additionally, all RCORP grant award recipients will be supported by 
five cooperative agreements: RCORP-Technical Assistance, which provides 
extensive technical assistance to award recipients; RCORP-Evaluation,
