Rural Opioid Overdose Reversal Grant Program (ROOR)

April 9, 2015

The Federal Office of Rural Health Policy (FORHP) is pleased to announce the release of the Rural Opioid Overdose Reversal Grant Program (ROOR).  The one year program will fund efforts that will focus on preventing opioid overdose in rural areas.

Opioid overdoses are an increasing problem throughout the United States.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that every day in the United States 120 people die as a result of drug overdose and 51.8 percent of those overdoses are related to pharmaceuticals.  Of that 51.8 percent, 71.3 percent involved opioid pain relievers.  People in rural communities are especially vulnerable and more likely to overdose on prescription painkillers than people in cities, according to the CDC.  In response to the nation-wide problem, on June 19, 2014, the Office of National Drug Control Policy convened the White House Summit on the Opioid Epidemic and Congress appropriated funds to the existing Rural Access to Emergency Devices (RAED) program line to specifically focus on opioid overdose.
