Rural Behavioral Health Workforce Centers-Northern Border Region
This notice announces the opportunity to apply for funding under the Rural Behavioral Health Workforce Centers – Northern Border Region (“RBHWCs”). The RBHWCs are a part of the Rural Communities Opioid Response Program, a multi-year HRSA initiative with the goal of reducing morbidity and mortality resulting from substance use disorder (SUD), including opioid use disorder (OUD), in high risk rural communities. The RBHWCs will advance RCORP’s overall goal by improving behavioral health care services in rural areas through educating and training health professionals and community members to care for individuals with behavioral health disorders, including SUD. This program supports HRSA’s collaboration with the Northern Border Regional Commission (NBRC) to provide career and workforce training activities within the four-state NBRC region, in order to assist individuals with behavioral health needs, particularly SUD. To this end, the RBHWCs will utilize a multi-sectoral, collaborative approach to enhance behavioral health care delivery within eligible rural NBRC counties and census tracts (see Appendix A) by developing and implementing training and mentorship programs focused on building the skills and capacity of rural health care providers, health support workers, non-clinical staff, and community members to care for individuals with behavioral health care needs.
